Figure Drivers of CH4 emissions from municipal solid waste in the EU, 1995–2008
Figure does not include data before 1995, as consistent data sets for the time 1990 to 1995 are not available for all Member States. MSW deposited = MSW generated – MSW incinerated – MSW recycled and composted Data for MSW generated, MSW incinerated and MSW recycled and composted are from national GHG inventory submissions and other data are from Eurostat, 2010.

Figure GHG emissions from municipal waste management in the EU, Switzerland and Norway
This figure shows the GHG emissions associated with municipal waste management for the EU-27 (without Cyprus) plus Norway and Switzerland, differentiated according to the contribution of specific waste treatment paths. The GHG emissions are calculated using a life-cycle approach. In order to see the overall effect of waste management, the avoided emissions (counted as negative values) are plotted with the direct emissions, giving the net greenhouse gas emissions from MSW management in European countries (the black line).

Press Release Octet Stream Highest recycling rates in Austria and Germany – but UK and Ireland show fastest increase
Austria, Germany and Belgium recycled the largest proportion of municipal waste in Europe in 2010. Although some countries have rapidly increased recycling rates, Europe is still wasting vast quantities of valuable resources by sending them to landfill, and many countries risk falling short of legally binding recycling targets.

Publication Troff document Horizon 2020 mediterranean report
The H2020 Mediterranean Report is a joint effort of the EEA and UNEP/MAP resulting from the creation of a regular review mechanism of environmental progress in the three H2020 policy priorities. These are municipal waste, urban waste water and industrial pollution. The report also serves as a contribution to the mid-term review of the H2020 initiative.

Publication How much bioenergy can Europe produce without harming the environment?
The purpose of this report is to assess how much biomass could technically be available for energy production without increasing pressures on the environment. As such, it develops a number of environmental criteria for bioenergy production, which are then used as assumptions for modelling the primary potential. These criteria were developed on a European scale. Complementary assessments at more regional and local scale are recommended as a follow-up of this work.
