Summary
Functional unit: 
One ton of newspapers delivered to customers.
Goal and scope of the summary: 
The aim was to compare different waste management systems for newspaper waste. Material and energy recovery options were superior to landfilling. Differences between cases applying gasfication and incineration were minor. The preferred energy recovery method depends strongly on the fuel mixture used for the compensated energy production,the ratio of electricity & heat production and on the assumed total energy efficieny of the modelled plants.
Manufacturing impact level: 
Medium
