Abstract The preservation of the natural envirnonment requires a reduction in material intensity of economic systems. Recycling is a major method for meeting this requirement. One of the most appropriate formulations for economic recycling models is the introduction of recycling sectors and joint production of waste materials. The models are generally checked for the feasibility of net-production. Such models may be able to realize complete recycling material resources, but this is clearly… Expand
A Model of Eco-Efficiency and Recycling
Abstract This paper presents the model of an economy subject to the mass conservation principle. The economic system is related to the environment by a flow of virgin materials into the economy, andExpand

Abstract Recycling of waste reduces the demand for virgin materials, the amount of waste to be incinerated and/or landfilled, and also reduces emissions from these sources, however, it generatesExpand
