In order to achieve a circular economy, there must be a greater understanding of the links between economic activity and waste generation. This study introduces the first version of the UK waste input–output table that could be used to quantify both direct and indirect waste arisings across the supply chain. The proposed waste input–output table features 21 industrial sectors and 34 waste types and is for the 2010 time-period. Using the waste input–output table, the study results quantitatively…

TLDR
It is argued that employing IO methods in this way can provide information that may prove useful if regional policy makers attempt to consider waste reduction through consumption-focussed polices as well as production-based ones.

The Waste Input‐Output Approach to Materials Flow Analysis

TLDR
A general analytical model of materials flow analysis (MFA) incorporating physical waste input‐output is proposed that is fully consistent with the mass balance principle and applied to Japanese IO data for the flow of 11 base metals and their scrap.
