ABSTRACTIncreasing population in many countries consumed natural resources and generates secondary product. These secondary products may be in the form of pollutants and liberated in the atmosphere. In this paper, an analysis was performed for green house gas (GHG) emission from municipal solid waste disposal for Faridabad city, India. Land filling and waste-to-energy methods were considered for GHG emission and analysis was performed based on Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) model. GHG emission and linear pinch analysis (LPA) were performed based on the 50% collection efficiency in Faridabad city over a period of 10 years (2015–2025). Two scenarios of emission forecasting, such as land filling and waste to energy (incineration), were incorporated in this study. Hybrid analysis was presented for emission forecasting and emission reduction to develop a sustainable municipal solid waste management system for Faridabad. A target of 20% and 30% reduction in GHG emission was formulated with the help of LPA. The result shows that GHG in Faridabad city has been continuously changed from 2015 to 2025.The result represented here could be a decision support matrix for municipalities to develop integrated municipal solid waste management system for upcoming smart cities in India. Moreover, another novelty of this study reflects that cities having approximate same population, waste characteristics, and waste management technology could adopt this model for saving of GHG inventory and target-based reduction.
