Erasmus+ logo

This calculator was developed by Ekologi brez meja during the Creating zero waste methodology for municipalities Erasmus+ project together with Hnutí Duha and Zero Waste Europe.

Besides Eurostat data, it uses City of London GHG emission figures for different waste treatment options, model city figures from their annual Zero Waste strategy reports and the initial per-ton costs computed from a report by the German Environmental Agency.
