Environmental assessment with SIMUR for the current model of waste management of Sant Just Desvern and future applicable models in the municipality

The sistema-entorno balance scheme

This study aims to address the planning and management of waste in the local area, from a new point of view so that the new strategies for the future are planned in detail. This planning should be based on a process of evaluation and comparison of results, both of management such as economic and environmental to bet on the best choice and provide technical support in decisions.
In Sant Just Desvern, the municipality previously used the traditional system of collection in containers, amended in 2004 by one of islands of containers in sidewalk areas close to the citizen, and with the introduction of more commercial collections. This new configuration has increased the results of selective collection until reaching levels of a 54% (2009), which can be considered one of the highest achieved from a system in containers.
Sant Just Desvern was interested to take a new step forward in its results with the implementation of a model of collection door to door, which obtained better results in capture of selective fractions and quality.
To carry out the analysis of the new model has been a design of technical instruments of the new service door to door and its settings (with various scenarios). This was carried out with a comprehensive simulation by SIMUR (environmental assessment of the models of management software), then the results of the current system and systems designed were used to determine the management accepted, as well as the environmental benefits.
This analysis should demonstrate the feasibility of the introduction of this new model and its environmental benefits, compared to data obtained from the simulation of the current stage of management.

This planning should be based on one process of evaluation and comparison of results both as economic and environmental management to bet on the best choice and provide technical support in decision-making.
