3.Mass flows management for optimum usage of cyclical resources
Keyword:
Cyclical resources, Mass flow management, Optimum usage
Research summary:
To build the cyclic society, wastes should be regarded as cyclical resources and its recycle system must be constructed from the environmental and economical viewpoint. This study focuses on the mass flows management to establish cyclical use system. This study develops green accounting by incorporating the concept of material flow cost in order to estimate gross environmental cost of cyclical resources for whole life cycle. In the integrated assessment framework, gross environmental impact and environmental cost are assessed. Mass flows and predominant factors to achieve optimum usage of cyclical resources are analyzed.
