Abstract

The environmental benefits quantified in waste LCA studies are often directly proportional to the amounts of waste materials routed to a particular recycling technology, whereas the specific composition, properties, and presence of targeted resources in the waste materials may not be fully addressed. This suggests that the actual efforts associated with recovering and recycling of resources in waste may not be fully reflected by current LCA modeling approaches.
