Modelling of the solid waste quantity in public enterprises Since the total amount of waste generated by commercial and industrial enterprises in Austria is five time higher than what is produced by households and considering that consistant data is only available for latter, it is worth having a closer look to solid waste produced by public institutions to know about the potentials of waste minimizing. The aim of the thesis was to be able to quantify the amount of solid waste collected separatly by the enterprises and the routes of distribution. The thesis took into consideration enterprises concerning to social and public institutions like medical and public enterprises, education, post offices, police, etc. The data of solid waste were investigated at the place where the waste is produced (within the enterprises). Following a statistical evaluation the amount of the solid waste quantity in public enterprises was generated. Finally positiv examples (enterprises collecting separatly most of the solid waste) and their system for the collection of solid waste are portrayed. As the data analysation shows it is worth for an enterprise to separate solid waste in Vienna not only for positive ecological effects (like preservation of ressources) but also for economical advantages.
