Abstract

Fast growing mega cities in developing Asian countries are faced with problem of municipal solid waste management (MSWM) due to land scarcity, rapid urbanization and population growth. To determine the most sustainable strategy to solve the problem, Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) has been commonly used. This study developed localized weightning approach for integrated LCA by taking Jakarta as a case study. The result of this study hopefully could be reflected and adapted in other highly populated cities in developing Asian countries as a sustainable approach in solving MSWM problem.
