Industrial Solid Waste Management and Joint Production

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The study illustrates how joint production theory can be applied in estimating the profitability of fractionating industrial solid wastes, a given product and the wastes produced in connection with its manufacture being regarded as a production-planning unit. Two case studies showing how the approach described can be applied both to bulk manufacturing and to the manufacture of technically complicated products are presented. The realism of this approach and the contribution it can make to optimize the separation of industrial solid waste fractions in manufacturing processes of different types, together with associated financial considerations, are discussed.
