This paper briefly reviews the failures that have inhibited efficient waste management policy and practice in the past. It then goes on to provide an economic analysis of the comparative merits and limitations of the regulatory approach to waste management policy and the market-based approach. The latter approach is examined in the context of three...
Chapter
The current concern with global environmental issues — climate change, biodiversity loss, ozone layer depletion, etc. — reflects the evolution in thinking about environmentalism which has taken place over the last twenty years or so. During the 1970s concern was overtly focused on source limits, i.e. population growth and natural resources and food...
Article
This paper aims to provide a formal definition of — and an evaluation framework for — so called low and non-waste technologies (LNWTs). The definition adopted for such process-integrated production changes is based on the minimization of the input-output and the production to waste output ratios. A simple materials balance equation is utilized to d...

... Or, la perspective d'accumulation d'objets peu qualitatifs basée sur une utilisation intensive des ressources, va se confronter à ses propres limites : que ce soit pour l'extraction, le transport ou la fin de vie des matériaux.

... Historically, 'circular economy' was introduced in 1990 (ref. 31 ), and it was later extended to multiple sectors including water and waste management, food production, and sustainable design and construction. ...
... Dado que la demanda de aceites usados en su conjunto parece estar directamente relacionada con el precio del petróleo, el punto final de equilibrio variará significativamente en función de ese precio: con un precio alto, el aceite usado se convierte en recurso más que en residuo, por lo que su demanda se desplazará hacia arriba y la cantidad intercambiada será mayor; en tanto que en una situación de precios bajos ocurrirá lo contrario [Irwin (1977); Lohof (1991)]. En el primer caso, la recogida se intensificará ante los mayores márgenes de venta de los aceites, posibilitando la aparición de más empresas recogedoras. ...
... 619). In addition, some other reasons for natural capital non-substitutability must be considered-the consequences of its depletion are largely unknown and uncertain, and its loss is often irreversible [15,16]. ...
... The trade-offs can be made implicitly or explicitly depending on the policy approach adopted. Two broad types of policy approaches toward the internationalisation of pollution externalities can be distinguished -the cost-benefit approach and the precautionary approach (Pearce, Turner and O'Riordan, 1992). ...
... Although clear that regulation can negatively impact technology innovation in a wide range of industries (Rothwell, 1980; Ashford & Heaton, 1983), the reason why it does so is less clear. Findings suggest that the negative impact on technology innovation is most noticeable in industries with standards for minimum quality, safety, and efficacy (Maxwell, 1998; Hall & Bagchi-Sen, 2002), especially when regulation is too rigidly imposed or administratively complicated (Pearce & Turner, 1984), or when it limits and encumbers technology related activities and outcomes (Garud & Rappa, 1994). ...
... Thus, MBAs facilitate stimulating the pro-environmental behaviour and its outcomes of SMEs (Singh et al., 2018). Few studies have tested EIs as an antecedent variable (Agan et al., 2013;Brisson, 1993;Naughton et al., 1990;Pearce and Turner, 1993) and as moderating variable (Clemens, 2006) in developed countries, but for the developing economy perspective it is yet to be explored. This paper thus aims to examine the adoption of EIs in translating green practices into EP. ...
... 1202-1208, vid p. 1203: «This institutional economics stream favors policy options based on market or quasi-market bargaining, underpinned by the allocation of property rights, to achieve socially optimal levels of environmental externalities». 13 Porque «si bien puede que los mercados no aseguren la cantidad óptima de externalidad, pueden ser conducidos en esa dirección de modo muy sutil sin la necesidad de una actividad reguladora completa, con sistemas impositivos o a través del establecimiento de limitaciones»: Pearce, D.W. et Turner, R.

... Each component is correlated, thus meaning that a decline in one can inadvertently affect the availability of another [14]. Additionally, integrated water resource planning implies that water interacts with other systems such as land and the environment; thus, there are direct consequences caused by the relationships [79,82]. This implication nudges water entities to focus on issues such as waste disposal, floodplain management, recreational use of water, and erosion control. ...
