ZERO WASTE - Low Cost Zero Waste Municipality MED 2007-2013 AN EXAMPLE OF WASTE MANAGEMENT MASTER PLAN IN A GREEK MUNICIPALITY Laboratory of Heat Transfer and Environmental Engineering Presented by:
Contents Objectives of the master plan Development of the master plan Master plan for the Municipality of Preveza Scenarios development Conclusions
Objectives of the master plan The main objective of the master plan for the Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) management is the minimization of the MSW amount to final disposal concerning the municipality (the example of Preveza, Greece). Drivers: Economic, environmental and social sustainability Economic, environmental and social sustainability Public participation Public participation
Development of the master plan Evaluation of the current situation regarding waste management in the selected municipality. Development of waste generation and management scenarios regarding the next decades taking into account the regional planning. Evaluation of the available rational waste management schemes: -Home and municipal composting -Recycling -Reuse of waste -Production and waste derived fuel (biomass) -Operation of reuse and recycling centres -Landfill restoration
Master plan for the municipality of Preveza Current situation Population: 30.000 Quantities: 25-35 tones/day Total amount of generated MSW: 13.000 tones/year
Distance from the closest sanitary landfill 85 km

Information campaigns addressed to public Different ways of information campaigns: ‘door-to-door’ campaign ‘door-to-door’ campaign Dissemination of informational material in public places Dissemination of informational material in public places Hotline open to the citizens Hotline open to the citizens Events (seminars, conferences, informational visits to schools) Events (seminars, conferences, informational visits to schools) TV and radio programmes and advertisements TV and radio programmes and advertisements Visits to municipalities that have already implement rational waste management schemes Visits to municipalities that have already implement rational waste management schemes Educational seminars for the waste management municipal personel Educational seminars for the waste management municipal personel Participation of the municipality in national and international networks promoting rational waste management Participation of the municipality in national and international networks promoting rational waste management
Recycling scenarios Scenario 1: Increase of the MSW recycling stream by 1%. Scenario 2: Increase of the MSW recycling stream by 5%. This scenario includes informational campaigns. Scenario 3: Dissemination of 250 (660 litres) blue bins in 2010 and 250 in 2014. In this way it has been estimated that the recycling rate will be increased by 30% in 2010 and by 30% in 2014. Informational campaigns will take place in this scenario as well.
Performance of the recycling scenario Scenario 2Scenario 3 Scenario 1 Quantities (kt)
Home composting scenarios Scenario Α: Dissemination of 2.500 home composting bins (140 lit) successively (500 bins every 4 years). Scenario Β: Dissemination of 5.000 home composting bins (140 lit) successively (1.000 bins every 4 years).
Performance of the home composting scenario Quantities (kt) Scenario AScenario B
Municipal composting The implementation of municipal composting scheme will achieve significant waste diversion from the total amound ending up in landfills. In this way it has been estimated that the municipality of Preveza will reduce the WM cost by 250.000 €/year.
Consolidated scenario The consolidated scenario includes the implementation of all the above scenarios (recycling, home and municipal composting). Scenario Ι: municipal composting scheme Scenario ΙΙ: recycling scheme Scenario ΙΙΙ: home composting scheme Scenario IV: scenarios combination
Consolidated scenario Scenario I Scenario IVCurrent WM cost Scenario IIIScenario II COST
Reuse/recycling centres Significant diversion of MSW ending up in landfills Reduction of WM cost Increase of sanitary landfill life span Materials/goods for low-budget citizens Good examples from Marseille and Munich
Anaerobic Digestion Unit An Anaerobic Digestion Unit (ADU) is proposed to operate in the municipality of Preveza in order to decrease the waste amount ending up in landfills. Biogas, as a result of the ADU operation, can be exploited for thermal and electric energy production.
Proposals for the municipality of Preveza Recycling Home composting Municipal composting Anaerobic Digestion Unit Energy recovery Sanitary landfill MBT Small scale Medium scale Large scale Need to be adopted Mun. of Preveza will have revenues by selling energy WM cost reduction by implementing rational WM schemes
Estimated future WM cost decrease by implementing the consolidated scenario
Conclusions The implementation of rational WM schemes have advantages in terms of environmental, economic and social level. Reduction of WM cost. Claim for lower gate fees by the municipalities. Increase of the sanitary landfill life span. Contribution in the achievement of the EU targets regarding WM.
