Abstract [en]

Sustainability Indicators (SIs) have been used with many different purposes, but never before inside a Waste Management Planning (WMP) process. In this report, a list of indicators has been designed so that the sustainability of a Waste Treatment Technique (WTT) for Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) in a specific situation is evaluated. The creation of this list is the consequence of a deep information seeking process on SIs, on MSW’s treatment techniques and of the use, as a base, of the indicators created by the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations. In order to assess the usefulness of the list designed, The City of Stockholm has been chosen. A satisfactory result has been obtained: the SIs selected for this specific use, give a suitable picture and enough information of the studied situation. However, additional applications (in other contexts) are necessary for a more complete validation and for improving the weakest points.
