Guide to the Utilization of the CDM in Waste Management

The guide is aimed at project developers, installation companies and system manufacturers, as well as decision makers in the administration authorities, especially in developing and transformation countries. These guidelines describe possibilities and options as to how the project-based mechanisms of the Kyoto protocol can be used for modern waste handling systems. Technical possibilities and economic framework conditions are linked and divided in three main information sectors:

  • Brief Description of the tools CDM and JI in the context of waste management
  • Description and discussion of the methodology which forms the basics for implementation and acknowledgement of CDM/JI projects
  • Presentation and description of the refuse systems which contribute to climate protection and displays of potential for the reduction of greenhouse gases in selected countries and regions
