EPA updates WARM

The USEPA has released an updated version of the "Waste Reduction Model" also called WARM.

WARM is a detailed model based on life cycle analysis (LCA) for calculating and comparing the changes in green house gas emissions and energy usage with change in waste handling techniques. It is developed to "help solid waste planners and organizations track and voluntarily report greenhouse gas emissions reductions and energy savings". It is available in two forms, one of which web based calculator is much easier to use than Excel spreadsheet, however in terms of functionality, the Excel spreadsheet which could be used on desktop offers more.

EPA has also provided a WARM User's Guide
