By disposing of up to 80% of the raw materials, already the generated materials and the packaging, the EcoSynergy system ensures a radical reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. System participants benefit from generated CO2 vouchers.
It is estimated that 1.6 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) equivalent greenhouse gas emissions were generated from solid waste treatment and disposal in 2016, driven primarily by open dumping and disposal in landfills without landfill gas capture systems. This is about 5 percent of global emissions. Solid waste-related emissions are anticipated to increase to 2.6 billion tonnes of CO2-equivalent per year by 2050 if no improvements are made in the sector. (World Bank Report, 2019)
Every tonne of CO2 emissions generates CO2 vouchers that change economic, production and consumer flows in every country and worldwide.
The tested ESS model has shown that the inclusion of all population groups, service activities, processing industry and production of food and non-food products can radically reduce CO2 emissions into the environment by submitting of up to 80% of already generated raw materials and packaging into the ciruclar economy and not disposing them to landfills, the environment and nature.
