Comparison of WM Strategies and its Influence on GHG Emissions in Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina

Maja Colovic Daul

Developing countries and emerging economies could not only considerably reduce their GHG emissions at comparably low costs but also significantly contribute to improve public health conditions and environmental protection if they were to put in place sustainable waste management systems. Solid waste management (SWM) strategies offer huge potentials to contribute to climate change mitigation. In this work, SWM-GHG calculator was used to compare different potential strategies for waste management. In total 3 scenarios are assumed and evaluated. The result showed Scenario 2 is estimated to be 100.000 t CO2-eq/yr for recycling, while GHG emission reduction in Scenario 3, is up to 600.000 t CO2-eq/yr for total SWM (recycling and improved waste disposal).
