Why is it important?

The method was applied to the Stora Enso Hylte AB paper-mill in Sweden. The system in which the waste produced is used for energy production was preferable with regard to energy, economy and environmental impact. But the lowest carbon dioxide emissions was obtained with the existing system.


The method will be a basis for the development of methodologies for the analysis of waste handling systems. These will be applicable to other branches of industry.
