Dr DENG Wenjing - Human Toxicity Potential of Municipal Solid Waste Management Systems in Hong Kong – Landfilling
Chief Investigator:

Dr DENG Wenjing

Project Year:



This research will analyze the potential impacts of MSW systems in Hong Kong, which is facing an urgent situation on MSW management and its technical alternatives, by tracking the progress over time (2015-2020). All the related data on waste composition, material and energy consumption, generation, especially pollutant emission will be investigated. Scenario of the current system with landfills will be constructed and modeled using a novel LCA-based software. Results on the potential impacts of the alternative strategies to global warming, human toxicity via air, water, and soil will be obtained by characterization and normalization.
