Designing waste management systems to meet circular economy goals: The Italian case

Waste management capacity plays a prominent role in complying with circular economy goals, such as reducing municipal waste disposal by landfilling to 10%. We first analyze the imbalance in municipal solid waste management across Italy by estimating the quantities of waste to be treated using technologies different from those currently in use. Subsequently, we estimate the impact that a system compliant with circular economy goals would have on the cost of waste management. Our empirical analyses are based on an econometric method. The results suggest that Italy could reduce the use of landfill by 11.5%, resulting in a 13% reduction in mechanical-biological treatment. The waste-to-energy capacity would rise by 4.6% compared to the current situation, while the organic fraction treatment capacity would increase by 8.3%. Besides the positive impact on the environment, the potential annual savings on the cost of waste management could reach 0.07%, or 0.27% when the phase corresponding to treatment and disposal is considered. We provide insights into the design of more efficient national waste management plans using a novel approach based on best performers

Gas distribution service: a concrete proposal to start with projects and investments

The gas distribution infrastructures are a patrimony of the country for their capillarity and consistency. However, there is an urgent need for requalification and development.  The implementation of the European directives on the liberalisation of the gas sector dates back to 2000 (DL 164/200) and the ATEM Tendering Decree (Minimum Territorial Ambits) to 2011. The […]
