In the literature on both operations management and logistics management we find business models that explain how input (e.g. natural resources, capital, human resources, material) is transformed into outputs (products, servcies) through activities and management actions.
What we know less about is how this output ends up as household or industrial waste. Consider this current discussion in the EU parlament: “Across the EU, 3.5 tonnes of waste is produced per person per year”
This is what we find at the end of the supply chain. Maybe Tony Soprano, the notorious “waste management consultant“, could help us out.
Anyone for taking a head-count in EU?
