|Abstract: ||An existing materials flow model is adapted (using Excel™ and AMBER™ model
platforms) to account for waste and hidden material flows within a domestic
environment. Supported by national waste data, the implications of legislative
change, domestic resource depletion and waste technology advances are explored.
The revised methodology offers additional functionality for economic parameters
that influence waste generation and disposal. We explore this accounting system
under hypothetical future waste and resource management scenarios, illustrating
the utility of the model. A sensitivity analysis confirms that imports, domestic
extraction and their associated hidden flows impact mostly on waste generation.
The model offers enhanced utility for policy and decision makers with regard to
economic mass balance and strategic waste flows, and may promote further
discussion about waste technology choice in the context of reducing carbon budg|
