How can emissions from waste be reduced?

The IPCC projects that waste disposal will account for more than 1.6 gigatons (Gt) carbon dioxide equivalent (Gt CO2-eq) in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2030, 3 percent of the global total. This includes emissions from the disposal of liquid waste through sewage treatment and solid waste through landfills and incineration. This contest seeks proposals that address any aspect of reducing GHG emissions from waste. Click here for contest details
