Consumption-Based Metrics: The Next Challenge for Zero-Waste Cities

The case for uniform reporting standards of waste data
Challenges arise from lack of uniform reporting methods in measuring waste reduction efforts. Advocates in the US demonstrate the need for a new metric to standardize measurement and comparison across US states. This discrepancy among US municipalities and states translates to the EU: member states are similarly void of uniform reporting. Both US and EU member states will benefit from such a standardized measurement.

Cities are major contributors to – and battlegrounds of – climate change. According to a report from the UN Habitat, cities pump out roughly 70 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions whilst just occupying just 2 percent of the Earth’s land. Effective waste management and more intelligent use of material resources can not only play a significant role in reducing such emissions, but help urban environments prosper through improved public health impacts and citizen enterprise.

The Swedish government is introducing tax breaks on repairs to everything from bicycles to washing machines so it will no longer make sense to throw out old or broken items and buy new ones.

How plastics can be returned into oil

A smart machine can convert plastics into oil without any pre-treatments

A Japanese company called Blest created a small, very safe and easy to use machine that can convert several types of plastic back into oil. “If we burn the plastic, we generate toxins and a large amount of CO2. If we convert it into oil, we save CO2 and at the same time increase people’s awareness about the value of plastic garbage,” says Akinori Ito, CEO of Blest.

What should we do with materials that have no value at end-of-life?

What to do with packaging and paper products that don’t currently have value in recycling markets

In its article Matt Prindiville, Associate Director of UPSTREAM, tries to find the solution for the problem of packaging and paper products that don’t currently have value in recycling markets. Although producers operating in British Columbia − who are responsible for meeting a 75% waste diversion target for packaging and printed paper (PPP) − want to collect as many containers, newspapers, cans and other products as possible, they also collect non-recyclable materials in the meantime.

(The story of) Denmark’s transition from incineration to Zero Waste

How Denmark changed its approach of waste management

Denmark radically changes its current incineration based waste management policy

Although Denmark is perceived to be a green country, it is not so widely known that the waste management system of Denmark is based on incinerating waste. Denmark is one of EU countries that generate more waste per capita, and is world leader in incineration of household waste, burning 80% of it. Most household waste is not separately collected, and recycling rates are as low as 22%. Most organic waste, which is 90% water, ends up in incinerators.
