It does not include the subsequent costs of conversion of waste to energy which is covered in V.a Biomatter to fuel conversion costs.
Bioenergy imports are modelled on sheet VI.b of the excel model.
The technical assumptions are documented on pages 151 to 157 of the original 2050 Pathways Analysis Report. The assumptions were not changed in the Government's response to the Call for Evidence. However, the volume and composition of waste is currently being updated to match the analysis underlying the Defra waste strategy.
The user chooses between four waste scenarios, each generates different levels and mixes of waste, levels of recycling rates and levels of energy recovery.
The capital and operational costs associated with each choice cover:
- Waste collection: See 2050 working assumption Waste collection, separation & energy recovery Collection of household, commercial and industrial waste
- Separating the recyclable content: See 2050 working assumption Waste collection and separation Recycling Household, C&I
- Separating out the wet waste: See 2050 working assumption Waste collection, separation & energy recovery Separating wet waste from Household, C&I
- Preparing for conversion to energy: See 2050 working assumption Waste collection, separation & energy recovery Preparing for use for energy
- Landfill sites: See 2050 working assumption Waste landfill sites Landfill site
- Capturing gas from landfill sites: See 2050 working assumption Waste landfill gas capture Capturing the landfill gas
- Preparing the gas for conversion to energy: See 2050 working assumption Waste landfill gas capture Recovering the landfill gas for energy
- Capturing the gas from sewage: See 2050 working assumption Waste sewage gas capture Recovering sewage sludge for energy
