Modern plants 8 Solid Waste Management: Policy and Planning for a Sustainable Society on the contrary typically can handle most of the situation encountered in practice. 1 DEFINITION The first case-study refers to real data from an Italian area where selective collection is already around 65% of efficiency. The most important consequences are related to the significant reduction of recyclable materials in the residual MSW and to the increase of its LHV that has reached 13 MJ kg-1. The analysis of data pointed out that there is a different efficiency of source separation depending on the curbside system applied: monofamiliar houses guarantee a better selection compared to multi-familiar buildings.

Landfilling would seem to act as a Carbon sink option if we consider that a low putrescibility of waste could decrease the fugitive emissions of methane and plastics are inert when landfilled. On the contrary, looking at the characteristics of the residual MSW of the present case-study the putrescibility of the waste is not very low as demonstrated from the 19% of organic fraction content. In this scenario the CO2 saving from electricity generation from methane is significant thanks to high efficiency of conversion obtainable with engines.
