What is it about?

Why is it important?

The approach proportions industrial costs to waste. That can be applied to the Polluter-Pays Principle (PPP) in a way incorporating this principle into a company’s internal estimation system.


This approach will generate a waste-reducing incentive. The findings will encourage the use of PPP in combination with the equality principle to accomplish a fundamental change in attitudes toward industrial waste.
