The objective of this research is to compare the greenhouse gas emissions
between recycling of MSW recyclable value wastes and landfilling in Thailand.
Methane emissions from the organic fraction of waste in landfills contribute
to global warming whereas for recycling, the global warming potential comes
from the energy consumption of the recycling process. The whole life cycle of
the two scenarios is considered, including transportation. The recycling
option reduces the methane emissions from landfill due to diversion of waste. The
study shows that this reduction more than offsets the increase due to energy
consumption in the recycling process. Apart from the reduction in global
warming potential, recycling also contributes to resource conservation. Thailand
has a high potential for recycling since a large proportion of the waste
currently going to the landfills is actually recyclable. Two case studies of
ecodesign are also considered to highlight the increase in recyclability and the
benefits thereof.
