Electricity emission factor (Scope 3 - without transmission and distribution losses) using allocation - cut-off system model. In this model when energy is produced as a byproduct of waste treatment the energy comes without burden. Scope 3 emissions happen in the supply chain of the electricity production including the extraction/transport/transformation of the fuel as well as infrastructure/maintenance/other chemicals and consumables necessary to the functioning of the power plant.
