Waste accounts in a NAMEA framework Roel Delahaye Statistics Netherlands
Content Introduction Objectives Waste definition Waste Statistic Regulation Environmental accounting Conceptual issues Waste accounts Data issues Practical implications Results Future work Further extensions
ECONOMY ENVIRONMENT NAMEA (National accounting matrix including environmental accounts) - Physical supply and use tables - Consistent to SEEA and SNA
Need for improved waste accounts: - No recycling - No import and export - Limited NACE categories - Limited waste categories
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.
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.
Environmental Accounting Concepts : -Supply and use tables emissions + export – absorption + import = dumped waste - Boundary between economy and environment - Resident principle - Waste products versus residuals
Waste accounts Data sources: -waste database -foreign trade statistics -import-export dangerous waste -energy statistics -statistics on recyclers -National accounts data -
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
