Introduction
Giovanni Gadaleta is a PhD student at Polytechnic of Bari, Department of Civil, Environmental, Territorial, Building and Chemical Engineering. He is currently active in the research fields of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) and Hazardous Waste management. Especially, he is working on the bheaviour of bio-plastics waste in the anaerobic digestion and composting waste management process.

Article
Among different methods for municipal solid waste separate collection (SC), there is a lack of scientifically based methods for their selection available for decision-makers. This study develops and applies a methodology based on Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) aiming to assess and compare the sustainability of different waste management sc...
Article
In order to mitigate the social and ecological impacts of post-consumer plastic made of conventional petrochemical polymers, the market of (bio)degradable plastics have recently become more widespread. Although (bio)degradable plastics could be an environmentally friendly substitute of petrochemical ones, the consequences of their presence in the w...
Article
The use of bio-plastic-based packaging as an alternative to conventional plastic packaging is increasing. Among the plethora of different bio-based plastics, the most relevant ones are those that, at the end of their life, can be treated with the organic fraction of municipal solid waste. Even in these cases, their impact on the waste processing an...
Article
Full-text available
To address the problem of fossil-based pollution, bio-plastics have risen in use in a wide range of applications. The current waste management system still has some weakness for bio-plastics waste (BPW) treatment, and quantitative data is lacking. This study combines environmental and economic assessments in order to indicate the most sustainable a...
Article
The aim of this work is to assess how the presence of cellulose-based bio-plastics influence the biological stabilization of mixed Municipal Solid Waste (MSW). For the scope, two cellulose acetate bio-plastics have been mixed with a synthetic mixed waste to create samples with and without bio-plastics. A self-induced bio-stabilization has been carr...
Article
The incomplete degradation of bio-plastics waste is undermining the suitability of current anaerobic digestion (AD) and composting, opening up the exploration of new treatment routes, including mixed waste. Bio-plastics are treated with mixed waste in a mechanical-biological treatment (MBT) plant with the production of a dry fraction for incinerati...
Article
Full-text available
The role of Mechanical–Biological Treatment (MBT) is still of the utmost importance in the management of residual Municipal Solid Waste (MSW). These plants can cover a wide range of objectives, combining several types of processes and elements. The aim of this work is to assess and compare, from an environmental point of view, the performance of se...

Il presente lavoro analizza le prestazioni di un impianto di Trattamento Meccanico-Biologico (TMB) al variare dello schema di processo e con riferimento al caso studio dell'impianto gestito da AMIU Puglia Spa in Bari. L'impianto è in grado di trattare 700 t d-1 di rifiuti indifferenziati/residuali da raccolta differenziata prodotti a Bari e nei com...
Article
Full-text available
Anaerobic digestion (AD) of organic fraction of municipal solid waste (OFMSW) is considered an excellent solution for both waste management and energy generation, although the impacts of waste collection and transportation on the whole management system are not negligible. AD is often regarded as a centralized solution for an entire community, alth...
Article
Mixed plastics from municipal solid waste are usually recycled in suitable Material Recovery Facilities (MRFs) following separate collection. These plants allow the sorting of individual plastics with variable performance depending on the technologies adopted. The evaluation of the performance of MRFs is also conducted with different approaches, ev...
