addition, waste minimization, recycling and re-use represent an important and increasing potential for indirect reduction of GHG emissions through the conservation of raw materials, improved energy and resource efficiency and fossil fuel avoidance (medium evidence, high agreement). Because waste management decisions are often made
In Germany alone, more than 5 million tonnes of ash are created each year from the energetic usage of municipal solid waste. This bottom ash from waste incinerators contains up to 90% mineral traces, 4-8% ferrous metals and roughly 2% non-ferrous metals.
