1 Waste accounts in a NAMEA framework Roel Delahaye Statistics Netherlands

2 Content Introduction Objectives Waste definition Waste Statistic Regulation Environmental accounting Conceptual issues Waste accounts Data issues Practical implications Results Future work Further extensions

3 ECONOMY ENVIRONMENT NAMEA (National accounting matrix including environmental accounts) - Physical supply and use tables - Consistent to SEEA and SNA

4 Need for improved waste accounts: - No recycling - No import and export - Limited NACE categories - Limited waste categories

5 Waste what is it - Solid waste: Materials for which the generator has no further use for own purpose of production, transformation or consumption, and which he discards, or intends or is required to discard. (OECD/Eurostat joint questionnaire) - Solid waste residuals: Solid waste that has a value of zero (or a negative value) to the generator. - Solid waste products: Solid waste that has a positive value to the generator.

6 Waste what is it - Waste statistics regulation (WStatR): The objective of this European Regulation is to establish a framework for the production of Community statistics on the generation, recovery and disposal of waste (EC, 2002) - Regular, comparable and up to date data. - Many waste categories are distinguished. - In 2006 first data on 2004 will be reported.

7 Environmental Accounting Concepts : -Supply and use tables emissions + export – absorption + import = dumped waste - Boundary between economy and environment - Resident principle - Waste products versus residuals

8 Products or residuals?

9 Waste accounts Data sources: -waste database -foreign trade statistics -import-export dangerous waste -energy statistics -statistics on recyclers -National accounts data -

10 Waste accounts Data issue highlights: -Registrations versus accounts: -resident principle, -including export but not import -final treatment versus first treatment. -Allocating waste Eural codes -Illegal waste transfers

11 Waste accounts Practical implications : -Waste emissions -Waste absorption -Import – export waste -Balancing -Products versus residuals

12 Emissions by waste category

13 Emissions by industrial branch

14 Emissions attributed to final demand categories

15 Decoupling GDP and emissions

16 Future work -Time series -Link with expenditure data -Illegal waste transports -Waste products -Analyses
