Subject: EU SusTools workshop on waste treatment options 10-14-04
Date: Wed, 06 Oct 2004 16:47:14 +0200

We would like to invite you to the Workshop ?Evaluation of treatment options for municipal solid waste? to be held at the European Commission in Brussels on Thursday 14 October 2004. The workshop will focus on the external costs due to the pollution caused by the waste and on their inclusion in the process of choosing the most appropriate option for a given application. The Commission considers the internalization of external costs one of the keys for sustainable development.

The external costs of waste treatment for two case studies have been estimated in the DG Research funded-project SusTools (Tools for Sustainable Development), using a combination of life cycle assessment and impact pathway analysis (combining environmental fate modeling with monetary valuation). The two case studies are
1) a comparison of environmental performance and external costs of landfill and incineration in France;
2) a comparison of environmental performance and external costs of five thermal treatment options in Flanders (grate furnace, grate furnace with SNCR, grate furnace with SCR, and fluidized bed with two pretreatment options).

As part of the SusTools project this workshop will be held to involve stakeholders in a discussion of the results (with detailed explanations of the tools used by the team) and the evaluation of the waste treatment options. To help resolve conflicting interests and to deal with damages for which we do not have monetary values, experts on multicriteria decision analysis are participating in the project. They have developed a questionnaire that will be filled in by the workshop attendants and evaluated interactively. Your opinion as an expert will be extremely helpful for evaluating the treatment options. We very much hope that you or one of your colleagues can participate. Suggestions for other invitees would also be appreciated. Unfortunately we have no means to reimburse expenses for this workshop. Please confirm, by fax or e-mail to A. Rabl, whether you can participate since places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

A brief report summarizing the methodology used by the SusTools team and the detailed results will be sent to you shortly.

Sincerely yours,


Dr. Ari Rabl Marialuisa Tamborra
