7. Future waste quantities

In this project, we investigate how the quantity of waste develops in the future, and how the trend can be affected by policy measures aiming at waste prevention. For this purpose, we develop the model of the Swedish economy, EMEC, to include a description of how waste quantities depend on the production and consumption in society. We also examine the potential future waste quantities from durable products such as buildings, vehicles and machines.
