Key2® Territory Waste

Comparative analysis of waste management scenarios within a territory


  • Examine how the waste generated within a territory is currently managed (tonnage, characteristics, treatment processes etc.); projection of the tonnage produced by 2020/2030/2050 according to demographical and economic trend scenarios
  • Examine and compare different alternative waste production and management scenarios in terms of energy recovery / materials & agricultural recycling, GHG emissions, emissions avoided through recycling, capital and operating costs;  view these scenarios projected into 2020/2030/2050 and compare them with the objectives of the Grenelle Law
  • Clearly list all sources of waste and map the optimal location of potential treatment/recovery facilities to be created


1. Modeling of different waste management scenarios within a territory

2. Examination of the material, agricultural and energy recovery potential of the impact of CO2 and of the cost of the scenarios

3. 2030/2050 projection of waste sources and modeled scenarios


  • Listing of the waste-derived energy potential within a territory (recovered energy)
  • Decision-making tool to improve the current waste management system via the comparison of possible scenarios in environmental and economic terms
  • Territorial Climate & Energy Plan


  • Accurate assessment of the volume of municipal, industrial and agricultural waste produced within a territory, of its treatment processes and current level of recovery (waste-to-energy, materials and agricultural recycling)
  • Rapid comparison of the improvements that could be implemented in the short, medium and long term
  • Flexible and reliable tool using specific local data and ratios derived from reliable sources (ADEME etc.) and service operators’ feedback
  • Visual and revealing results: the tool provides a schematic representation of waste flow trends as well as maps for a clear, rapid and reliable overview of the results
