Calculating Per Capita Solid Waste generation in multiple countries

  • 1.  Calculating Per Capita Solid Waste generation in multiple countries

    Posted 02-24-2017 10:43 AM
    We reached an equation for calculating the per capita MSW generation in Brazil based on the income and the city population:

    Generation = 0,112. Population0,143

    and

    Generation = - 0,00000005 income2 + 0,0006 x + 0,2848


    I need some international data so that I can expand the algorithm.

    I'm looking for some partners on this project. The algorithm will be later published here: https://app.pegadadelixo.com.br/auth.
