This dataset represents the activity of waste disposal of waste wood, untreated in a open dump. Recommended use of this dataset: For untreated waste wood, which goes to disposal as part of unmanaged communal waste mixture. // Waste composition (wet, in ppm): upper heating value 15.36 MJ/kg; lower heating value 13.99 MJ/kg; H2O 174080; O 372180; H 50163; C 401470; S 125.51; N 986.98; P 108.97; B 2.1107; Cl 330.95; Br n.a.; F 21.106; I n.a.; Ag n.a.; As 0.42213; Ba n.a.; Cd 0.20051; Co 0.086772; Cr 0.65782; Cu 4.1482; Hg 0.31976; Mn 53.118; Mo 0.8302; Ni 0.55581; Pb 27.868; Sb n.a.; Se n.a.; Sn n.a.; V n.a.; Zn 17.807; Be n.a.; Sc n.a.; Sr n.a.; Ti n.a.; Tl n.a.; W n.a.; Si n.a.; Fe 15.479; Ca 130.89; Al 6.3322; K 65.412; Mg 197.56; Na 14.071; . // Share of carbon in waste that is biogenic 100%.

[This dataset has been generated using the system model "Allocation, cut-off by classification". A system model describes how activity datasets are linked to form product systems. The allocation cut-off system model subdivides multi-product activities by allocation, based on a physical properties, economic, mass or other properties. By-products of waste treatment processes are cut-off, as are all by-products classified as recyclable. Markets in this model include all activities in proportion to their current production volume.
Version 3 of the ecoinvent database offers three system models to choose from. For more information, please visit:…)]


This is an inventory for an open, uncontrolled waste dump for municipal solid waste. Ultimate average landfill height is 7 meters. Operation phase duration is 15 years.Percentage of landfill gas directly emitted is 100w%. A Methane Correction Factor (MCF) for landfill air emissions of 0.7057 is employed.
Leachate of the landfill is not treated. Based on average waste composition and climate data the end of carbonate phase is estimated to be reached 7789 years after waste deposition.
