  • 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… CONTINUE READING
