Industrial Management Models for Construction Waste Management

Stenis, Jan LU (2002)
Abstract
Much attention is nowadays devoted to waste management. The objective of this work is to show how commonly known business economic models and methods, as well as the Polluter- Pays Principle, can be applied to waste management in general and to waste fractionation in

particular, so as to facilitate environmental optimisation of industrial and construction waste

fractionation. In discussing the functionality of the modified models arrived at, systems theory is applied in order to get a clear picture of the context of the models.



A further objective is to investigate certain aspects of construction waste management economic model theory through case studies. Thereby, the applicability of the current... (More)
Much attention is nowadays devoted to waste management. The objective of this work is to show how commonly known business economic models and methods, as well as the Polluter- Pays Principle, can be applied to waste management in general and to waste fractionation in

particular, so as to facilitate environmental optimisation of industrial and construction waste

fractionation. In discussing the functionality of the modified models arrived at, systems theory is applied in order to get a clear picture of the context of the models.



A further objective is to investigate certain aspects of construction waste management economic model theory through case studies. Thereby, the applicability of the current modification of the above mentioned business economic models to construction waste management is tested. Generally, the work is performed in order to provide flexible management instruments adapted to changing demands.



The economic model methods are studied and modified from a waste management point of view. In this context, the “equality principle” introduced earlier by the author (Stenis, 2002), interpreted as equality between (industrial) waste and regular products in business economic terms, is applied. The modified, mainly cost assessment oriented, methods are evaluated from

a business economics perspective in relation to waste.



It is concluded that the findings point at the partly fruitful possibility to modify commonly used cost-revenue estimation methods and contribution margin analysis including the Polluter-Pays Principle (PPP) in a practical industrial and, to a certain extent, a practical

construction waste management context by the use of the equality principle. Therefore, it can be said that construction waste management can be carried out by using certain (modified) economic models. Therefore, the generality of the results is satisfying. (Less)
