The NAMA aims to introduce new alternatives the ongoing practices of waste treatment, currently based primarily on landfills.
The NAMA proposes to shift to Mechanical and Biological Treatment (MBT), coupled with the co-incineration of Residual Derived Fuels (RDF) in cement kilns.
The implementation of the NAMA was first discussed during two workshops in April 2016 in Morocco, attended by municipalities, mayors, private sector companies and NGOs:
- The first workshop was organized in the City of Beni Mellal, where MBT and RDF co-incineration in a local cement plant were considered in the city’s new waste management contract. Beni Mellal, with an annual domestic waste load of 75 000 tones, will eventually host the first project of the NAMA.
- The second workshop was organized in the City of Agadir and set out to explain in detail the benefits of MBT and RDF co-incineration practices.
To give participants some hands-on experience, working groups were formed to simulate different waste management scenarios and assess their GHG mitigation potentials, budget, and economic benefits using a GHG Tool.
Impact and MRV
|Cumulative GHG reductions: No data available|
No information has been provided on mitigative capacity
|Social:|| The NAMA is expected to create new jobs (and thereby greater autonomy for women who would work in these new jobs), contribute to the integration of informal trash collectors into the formal sector, and improve the quality of living of citizens.
|Economic:|| It will create economic benefits in the form of infrastructure investment, mobilization of the private sector, production of raw materials from recycling, the creation of recycling cooperatives, and the generation of energy for consumption/reduction of energy prices.
|Environmental:|| It will promote the protection and efficient use of natural resources, promote energy efficiency, reduce odours and pollutants, and reduce environmental hazards such as leachate.
No MRV plan has been defined
