Abstract

The increase in waste generation and constant growth requires quantification of emissions in order to assess the problem and contribute to its mitigation. The study evaluated the impact of non-hazardous waste through organic and inorganic indicators, such as annual tons of paper and cardboard, plastics, ferrous metal, food waste, garden and wood, for three base scenarios (BS) for the period 2016-2018, a reference scenario (integration of the base scenarios) and a futuristic scenario determined by the increase in production. These scenarios were built based on the availability of information from the safety and environmental sector of the industry to calculate CO2-eq (Carbon Dioxide Equivalent) using the GHG-MRS tool, based on pre-defined parameters adapted to the availability of information and the conditions of the case study. The 2016 EB estimated 60 t/a/CO2-eq, the 2017 EB presented 46 t/a/CO2-eq, the 2018 EB generated 14 t/a/CO2-eq, while the reference scenario determined 60 t/a/CO2-eq. The data provide a prospective vision for decision-making in a petrochemical industry in southern Tamaulipas, contributing to the problem of increasing waste from a specific sector with regional implications.
