Grant holder: Mr A Nahman

Institution: CSIR

Grant: CSIR/IU/WRIU/2016/002

Duration: 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2018

Status: Complete

Project outline: The aim of this project is to expand on the existing separation-at-source (SASCOST) model, by incorporating socio-economic and environmental impacts. By the end of the project, a usable and user-friendly Decision Support Tool will have been developed, which can be used by municipal waste management departments (and/or their service providers, or private waste management companies) to inform their decision as to how best to implement source separation from an integrated economic, social and environmental perspective, depending on their unique context.
