A major issue facing modern society is waste and waste management, which is a key factor for reducing carbon emissions. The waste sector is uniquely situated to substantially mitigate the second most abundant greenhouse gas, methane. Focusing on waste with improvements in solid waste management can also bring various co-benefits such as an improvement in air quality, a reduction in contamination-related illnesses, economic growth, and a boost to energy resources.
An integrated solid waste management strategy, including targeting waste prevention, recycling, composting, energy recovery, treatment, and disposal, can have a significant impact on reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
There are multiple technological options promoted by ClimaLoop to reduce GHG emissions such as:
– Landfill Gas Utilization: The objective of the Landfill gas projects developed by ClimaLoop is to reduce GHG emissions through the utilization of landfill gas as renewable energy.
– Biogas Utilization: The objective of the Biogas projects developed by ClimaLoop is to reduce GHG emissions from different sources (agriculture, industrial, WWTP or households).
– Compost Production: The objective of the Compost Production projects developed by ClimaLoop is to reduce GHG emissions by diverting the organic waste from landfills.
– Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: ClimaLoop can reduce your waste, reuse your resources and recycle your waste to tackle climate change.
