    Abstract

    This study addresses the challenge of including geographical information related to waste resources, energy demands and production plants, and transport options in the optimization of waste management. It analyses how waste may serve as an energy source through thermal conversion and anaerobic digestion. The relation to the energy sector is taken into account. The geographically specific potentials and utilization possibilities of waste are taken into account. Thus, the relative location of the resources (in this study waste and manure for codegestion) is accounted for. Also the location of the resources relative to their utilization (in this study mainly the location of district heating networks) is considered. The temporal dimension is important for the energy sector which displays distinct variations over the year, week and day, and this is reflected by a subdivision of the extension of the year. The study provides an analysis of the Danish waste and energy systems with a spatial and temporal resolution.
