Waste Management in the Age of Alternative Energy

Yoojung Jo, Injae Yu, Saehyung Sohn, and Donyun Kim
Abstract—It is crucial to minimize the amount of urban waste causing many environmental problems. However, for getting rid of waste generated in the city life completely is impossible, the effort to utilize such waste as energy sources is increasing through the proper management. Despite the advantages and importance of waste management, Nimby makes it difficult to locate the facility in urban environment. The aim of this study is to draw a suitable direction for Korea’s waste management to convert waste into energy. For this, investigated and analyzed were the international cases related to energy recovery from waste methods. As a result, there are common features: production of energy to replace fossil energy, high profitability, energy independence and the resolving of Nimby. Although local conditions and the situation in the foreign country may be different, perceptions and the role of principals who practice it need benchmarking for its own country’s situation.

Index Terms—Alternative energy, waste management, Nimby phenomenon, climate change.
