Regarding the facility for the treatment and conditioning of solid waste with hight volume reduction factor, the ECA says that an experimental technology for plasma melting was selected for the Kozloduy NPP without sufficient proof of its effectiveness and without due consideration of the costs of operating the facility (some EUR 30 M compared to one fifth for traditional technologies).
Based on a recent survey of State departments of transportation conducted under National Cooperative Highway Research Program Project 17-25, "Crash Reduction Factors for Traffic Engineering and ITS Improvements," other methods include applying the CMF for the single countermeasure expected to achieve the greatest reduction, applying CMFs separately by crash type and summing them to get a project-level effect, and applying engineering judgment based on a review of crash patterns.
The wide variability among derived accident reduction factors may be due to one or more of the following reasons: * some evaluation methods such as simple studies, often overestimate accident reduction potentials; * the use of the average accident reduction factor is an absolute measure without providing the ranges of the expected reduction; and * Some evaluation studies have ignored the level of severity of accidents and the extent of improvement activities.
