Determining climate protection potentials in the circular economy for Germany and the EU / Partial Report Germany


This partial report shows decision-makers and interested parties the potential of the circular economy for greenhouse gas reduction in 2017 and for 2030 in Germany. Municipal waste, food waste and roughly commercial waste and construction and demolition waste are contemplated using the life cycle assessment method. The crediting of self-composting in the recycling rate is estimated with regard to the effects on the climate protection potential and, based on the available data, waste avoidance and reuse are included in the greenhouse gas balance for the first time.

The partial report on Germany is available in German and English. The project is supplemented by the partial reports for the EU
