[greenyes] Rethinking the Waste Hierarchy published in Denmark


For your information, the Danish Environmental Assessment Institute, a
governmentally funded agency, has published "Rethinking the Waste
Hierarchy", with individual chapters written by an international group of
economists, including Clemen Rasmussen (project manager), Dorte Vigsø, Frank
Ackerman, Richard Porter, David Pearce, Elbert Dijkgraaf and Herman
Vollebergh.

The basic conclusion is that an examination of alternatives should include
social, enviromental and economic costs and benefits and some EU directives
do not result in the lowest costs.

This document may stimulate discussion in Europe on their packaging,
landfill and other directives.

The 118 page document is on the web at
