Transcript of "Biocity"

  1. 1. Sydney
  2. 2. Australia is the Fifth-Highest waste generator among the OECD Countries (OECD 2005) OECD: Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development DEC : Department of Environment & Climate Change NSW Most of Sydney waste is regulated by WSN, a private company owned by the State WSN regulates over 90% of Sydney’s waste and currently owns: Four out of Five putrescible landfill facilities Seven out of eight waste transfer stations servicing Sydney Sydneysiders dispose over 1 tonnes of waste per person in landfills each year! The Australian average is over 600 kgs ** This is a combination from municipal, C&I, and C&D Waste
  3. 3. Sydney Waste! Increasing Trend? SMA: Sydney Metropolitan Area Source: NSW State of the Environment 2006
  4. 4. Sydney Waste! Increasing Trend? Source: Sydney City Council Website
  5. 5. Rising Recycling / Recovery Rate, is it enough? Sydney Population as of 2006: 4,119,190 Average Recovery Rate right now: 49% Source: Department of Environment and Climate Change NSW Over 1000 people come to Sydney EVERY week In 2021, how much waste will Sydney be producing? Waste 2003 2004-05 2014(Target) Municipal 26% 37% 66% Commercial 28% 35% 63% Construction 65% 66% 76%
  6. 6. Rising Recycling / Recovery Rate, is it enough? Sydney in 2021: Over 5 million people More people, more waste Best Case Estimation: 5 million x 1 ton = 5 million tons of waste WSN handles 90% of Sydney. What is their recovery rate? Source: WSN Annual Report 2005-2006 Recovery Rate: 22% in 2006 ! 78% goes to landfills EVERY year (at least)
  7. 7. Assumption <ul><li>At this rate in eventually, Sydney landfills will be FULL </li></ul><ul><li>(prediction by 15-20 years) </li></ul><ul><li>Facts </li></ul><ul><li>Sydney waste will keep increasing </li></ul><ul><li>Landfill capacity is not increasing - No new landfill Sites </li></ul><ul><li>Land is expensive and scarce! </li></ul>The Crisis What will happen if we run out of Landfills?
  8. 8. The Crisis - Local Landfills and Rising Oil Price 45 ha 158 ha 84 ha 388 ha 13.4 ha Source: WSN Annual Report 20 L / 100 KM 50 KM Oil Price 2006 AU$ 1.5 / litre Trip (50km): AU$15 Oil Price 2036 AU$ 3 / litre Same Trip: AU$30! Oil Price 2036 AU$ 3 / litre Trip to Moruya 250 KM: AU$135! 20 L / 100 KM Waste Transport Fee Up by 1000%
  9. 9. The Crisis - Local Landfills and Rising Oil Price <ul><li>2 Outcomes for the Future : </li></ul><ul><li>Charge Australians more for their garbage </li></ul><ul><li>Improve / Change the System now for the future! </li></ul>WSN is a private Company Will the operation still be feasible for them in the future? Result: They will stop operation unless Sydney pays more!
  10. 10. The Solution - Local Landfills and Rising Oil Price <ul><li>2 Outcomes for the Future : </li></ul><ul><li>Charge Australians more for their garbage </li></ul><ul><li>Improve / Change the System now for the future! </li></ul>WSN is a private Company Will the operation still be feasible for them in the future? Result: They will stop operation unless Sydney pays more!
  11. 11. The Solution - Local Landfills and Rising Oil Price 1. Make it a policy to use Hybrid Garbage Trucks 40% of total fuel consumed in collection mode is used to generate hydraulic power Hybrid trucks can save around 5000 litres of fuel annualy (Green NSW) Hybrid GarbageTrucks – Hydraulic / Electric Summary: Hydraulic System is 20% more effecient in fuel! Source: Transport Canada
  12. 12. The Solution - Local Landfills and Rising Oil Price Result: 20% more effecient is still +AU$100 to transport waste 2. Make it a government priority to Upgrade ALL landfill facilities to UR-3R Facility 70% Waste can be processed and only 30% goes to the landfill! Will delay landfill filling up so recycling technology can catch up! Less Trucks carrying less waste to landfill outside of Sydney
  13. 13. The Solution - Local Landfills and Rising Oil Price Result: 20% more effecient is still +AU$100 to transport waste Result: 70% Less waste to landfill meaning less trucks transports 3. Policy to use more recylable products! 4. Policy to have local recycling centers! <ul><li>Avoid the use of toxic non recylable materials </li></ul><ul><li>Sydney councils socialize the reduction of plastic use for everyday lives </li></ul><ul><li>PVC, and other products that can’t be recycled </li></ul>Local councils invest to recycle at least 30% of their municipal waste reducing the amount sent to landfills and 3R facilities
  14. 14. The Solution - Local Landfills and Rising Oil Price Sydney is an ever growing city! The more it grows, the more waste! “ It is a huge living organism producing an ever increasing amount of waste” END OF PRESENTATION THANK YOU!
