Responsibility for regional waste generation: A single region extended input-output analysis with uni-directional trade flows
The paper uses a regional input-output (IO) framework and data derived on waste generation by industry to examine regional accountability for waste generation. In addition to estimating a series of industry output-waste coefficients, the paper considers two methods for waste attribution but focuses first on one (trade endogenised linear attribution system (TELAS)) that permits a greater focus on private and public final consumption as the main exogenous driver of waste generation. Second, the paper uses a domestic technology assumption (DTA) to consider a regional â€˜waste footprintâ€™ where local consumption requirements are assumed to be met through domestic production.
