CO2 scan on waste for SITA: Background data

Significant climate gains can be achieved through separate collection and recycling of waste. This is the result to emerge from the 'SITA CO2 scan' developed by CE Delft for waste collector and processor SITA. The scan gives companies a straightforward picture of how they can help protect the climate through improved separation of waste streams and delivery therof to SITA. A key feature of the tool is the possibility to translate waste processing at the company level in CO2 emissions, thus giving compagnies insight into how separating their waste helps reduce their CO2 emissions. The tool incorporates a considerable volume of raw data, so that even in the absence of detailed registration of waste a good estimate can be made. The SITA CO2 scan also allows the data to be converted to savings in the number of car-kilometers driven, moreover. SITA account managers are using it as an additional communications tool with customers and initial responses have been positive.
