Abstract:Waste generation issues in Mexico City, high volumes, and not enough disposal facilities for them have become a problem that governments alone cannot solve, and consequently local communities have to be involved in the transformation. Of course, the waste management problem is complex and involves several factors, among them, insufficient waste collection system represents one of the barriers for an effective waste management. Thus, this research project attempts to answer if a circular economy approach can become a solution by utilizing in situ organic waste for energy generation through an anaerobic digester, reducing waste volumes while doing so, in a residential area in Mexico City as showcase.
