The results enclosed show substantial large economic and environmental savings for Local councils in many countries

The economics page on the spreadsheet “Landfill Savings Australia (excel link below )“ calculations is formatted for councils to change the curb side collection and landfill costs, to meet different council's circumstances and to arrive at their costs and environmental savings from the two Aerochamber’s tested.

Each council can calculate the total cost savings per tonne of MSW, diverted from landfill.

Example:

The 612 lt Aerochamber has diverted 1.8765 tonnes from Australian landfill, if the total cost savings per tonne is $40 the total cost savings per year = $ 75 for the 612 lt Aerochamber.

The 300 lt Aerochamber has diverted .8762 tonnes from Australian landfill; if the total cost savings per tonne is $40 the total cost savings per year = $35 for the 300 lt Aerochamber.

The public can calculate the total cost savings per year from each size Aerochamber from the following savings:

Tip fees, travelling costs, council curb side collection fees, council environment levy fees, and councils waste reduction incentives etc.

The landfill carbon emissions savings for Australia is tonnage composted x **743 kg CO2-e**/TFW. (Tonnes of food waste)

The 612 litre Aerochamber calculation is **1.8765 tonnes x 743 kg CO2-e = 1394.2 kg CO2-e** of annual savings.

The 300 litre Aerochamber calculation is **.8762 tonnes x 743 kg CO2-e = 651 kg CO2-e** of annual savings.

Transport carbon emissions savings is tonnage diverted from landfill calculated by fuel

Used per tonne, and converted fuel to CO2-e savings. 1 lt diesel fuel =2.6827 kg CO2-e.

Councils fuel usage, and costs of transport from curb side to landfill of putrescible waste,

will vary from council to council.

**Example:**

**612 Lt Aerochamber (Australian Trial)**

Diverted **1.876.5** of tonnes from landfill multiplied by fuel used per tonne equals **3.125** litres saved.

Diesel fuel multiplied by carbon emissions of **2.6827 kg** per litre CO2-e equals

**15.73 kg CO2-e** savings for a twelve month period

**300 Lt Aerochamber (Australian Trial)**

Diverted .876 of tonnes from landfill multiplied by fuel used per tonne equals 3.125 litres saved.

Diesel fuel multiplied by carbon emissions of 2.6827 kg per litre CO2-e equals

7.345 kg CO2-e savings for a twelve month period
