New research papers about waste recycling
Recovering, recycling and reusing waste materials are potential sources of economic activity and employment in South Africa. In 2016, ERC completed two phases of a REDISA-funded project that aimed to highlight the opportunities and benefits of reintroducing recycled waste products into the South African economy through extended producer responsibility initiatives.
These two papers are now available online:
- Hartley, F., Caetano, T. and Daniels R.C. 2016. The general equilibrium impacts of monetising all waste streams in South Africa.
- Hartley, F., Caetano, T. and Daniels R.C. 2016. Economic benefits of extended producer responsibility initiatives in South Africa: The case of tyres.
