GLRPPR Sector Resource: WAste Reduction Model (WARM)

Title:
WAste Reduction Model (WARM)

Abstract:
EPA created the WAste Reduction Model (WARM) to help solid waste planners and organizations track and voluntarily report greenhouse gas emissions reductions from several different waste management practices. WARM is available both as a Web-based calculator and as a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet (461 kb WinZip archive). WARM calculates and totals GHG emissions of baseline and alternative waste management practicessource reduction, recycling, combustion, composting, and landfilling. The model calculates emissions in metric tons of carbon equivalent (MTCE), metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MTCO2E), and energy units (million BTU) across a wide range of material types commonly found in municipal solid waste (MSW).
