Title:Fact Sheet: Cutting-Edge Software to Cut Emissions
Document Date:07/01/2002
Description:In 1998, the United States generated 220 million tons of municipal solid waste (MSW). The landfilling and combustion of this waste resulted in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of 65 million metric tons of carbon equivalent (MTCE). Today, a variety of software programs and models are available to help managers and planners reduce emissions at state, local, business, and institutional levels. These tools can enable them to determine the impact of their practices on climate change and the environment, as well as strategies to reduce those impacts.
