Abstract | Full Text

We present the characteristics of a new waste management system, implemented by the structural division of the Finnish company L&T, The Russian-Finnish company ‘Ecosystem’ in the science town of Dubna, Moscow region. The operation of the waste sorting facility has helped to reach a 100% level of separate waste collection within the city by using the system of waste collection consisting of two containers and a waste sorting complex (WSC). The analysis of the data from the WSC shows that the yield of the secondary raw material out of municipal solid waste (MSW) has increased from 5.2% to 10.1% over a period of 5 years. Environmental and economic evaluation of the systems for the MSW management in Dubna is performed for two variants. The costs of recovery of secondary raw materials from the WSC, profit from the sale of the recovered secondary raw materials, costs of disposal of the MSW stream at the landfill are evaluated. It is shown that the annual environmental and economic effect of the introduction of the new system of MSW management on the territory of Dubna, Moscow region, is 4.36 million RUB.
