Conceptual Framework for Near-to-site Waste Cycle Design

By Jón Garðar Steingrímsson and Günther Seliger


AbstractThe manufacturing industry is under pressure to reduce the emission of solid and liquid refuse as well as waste gas from plants into the environment. Technologies that reutilise these wastes can be referred to as cycle technologies. To assess which of these technologies to adopt is a challenge, since hardly any methods to evaluate the sustainability benefits exist.A conceptual framework for near-to-site variations of cycle technological design has been developed. Suitable structure and characteristics for initial technology assessment, specifically for these cycle technologies are presented. This approach is validated by a first promising example of crustacean shells reutilisation
