Abstract [en]

The aim of this report is to present environmental and economic data for some collection and recycling processes in Sweden. The data can be used in Life Cycle Assessment and Life Cycle Costing analysis as well as other tools for assessing environmental and economic impacts of different waste management systems and strategies. The report provides data on kerbside collection of plastic and metal packaging, and beverage cartons in Sweden. For each material fraction the source segregation efficiency and quality of the separated waste streams is presented, followed by data on the processes collection at the kerbside, handling at transfer and sorting stations, and primary reprocessing at the recycling plant. The waste streams are followed to the point in which the secondary material can replace virgin materials.

For each process the following data is included (as relevant for each process): electricity, heat and fuel use, generation of waste and by products, transportation work, material input per tonne material output, process related CO2-emissions, and economic costs. The chapters that cover reprocessing at the recycling plants also include a discussion on which materials that can be replaced by waste, by-products, and the secondary material.
