Developments in the management of Municipal Solid Waste has followed a very com-plex evolution in Europe, where, gradually, the principle that, in addition to minimizing the production of waste, the necessity to maximize its recovery has been established.

Abstract

Developments in the management of Municipal Solid Waste has followed a very com-plex evolution in Europe, where, gradually, the principle that, in addition to minimizing the production of waste, the necessity to maximize its recovery has been established. This leads to consider the waste as a potential resource, with both environmental and economic benefits. However, considering the different waste management systems in Europe, the results obtained are very different because they are affected by different as-pects (socio-economic structure, traditions, conformation of the territory, critical environ-mental issues, etc.). The present study took into account the situation in two developed and rich areas located in the Northern Italy, comparing the different approaches with the aim at improving the waste management by optimizing the recovery of waste, especially from an energy point of view, and in particular, realizing solid recovery fuel starting from proper treatments on the residual municipal solid waste
