Forecast future production of municipal waste on the basis of a panel data model in Algeria


  • Djemaci, Brahim


This study analyses the factors that influenced the production of municipal waste in Algeria. It carries an estimate of future quantities of waste on the basis of data from 48 departments from 1997 to 2008. We use econometric projection of the waste to determine the factors that influence the production of waste. The analysis shows that the production of municipal waste in Algeria is related to several factors: population density, the retail trade. The projection of future municipal waste amount achieves the 28 million tons in 2025.
