Using Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) as a Biofuel Feedstock (PDF)




Using a first-of-its-kind Life-Cycle Assessment model of biofuel production using MSW, this report includes an assessment of the environmental impacts associated with MSW conversion via landfill gas-to-energy, waste-to-energy, and gasification/Fischer-Tropsch. How current infrastructure could be used to support an MSW-to-biofuels industry is also explored using North Carolina as a case study.

This free report includes:

  • Detailed summaries of waste conversion processes
  • Comparison of environmental impacts of waste conversion systems
  • Case study of current waste management infrastructure
  • Estimates of biofuel production potential
  • Key observations regarding siting and feedstock for biofuel production
