Los Angeles County Public Works prepared a “Comparative Greenhouse Gas Emissions Analysis of Alternative Scenarios for Waste Treatment and/or Disposal”
The Comparative Analysis shows that an Integrated Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) with Conversion Technologies will achieve a net reduction in cumulative greenhouse gas emissions as compared to landfilling
post-recycled residuals from a mixed-waste MRF.
