Abstract

This conference aims at stimulating a discussion on current waste management systems in both developing and developed countries, with the view to encouraging a more holistic Resource Management approach as opposed to the traditional “end-of-pipe” Waste Management model. The conference will focus on concepts and tools that allow a reliable comparison between the environmental, economic and social performance of different waste and resource management systems and waste treatment options. Particular attention will be given to case studies of Life Cycle Assessment, Life Cycle Costing and Material Flow Accounting for specific waste management options and waste and resource management planning, especially concerning waste streams other than Municipal Solid Waste.
