- There are generating many municipal solid wastes in the rapid development of urbanization. Municipal solid wastes treatment could generate lots of carbon emissions, which accounted for an important share in total carbon emissions. Therefore, it is crucial to compare emissions from different ways of municipal solid wastes treatment and find the most effective one. This paper calculates municipal solid wastes treatment through landfill, incineration, and composting from 2000 to 2010 in Shenzhen city. The results demonstrate landfill produce more carbon emissions than composting and incineration. So, we should popularize composting, garbage classification and promoting power generation during the process of waste incineration in order to reduce carbon emission during refuse disposal.
