  • PC Njoku

Abstract



An Input-Output Model for Waste Management Plan has been developed for Nigeria based on Leontief concept and life cycle analysis. Waste was considered as source of pollution, loss of resources, and emission of green house gasses from bio-chemical treatment and decomposition, with negative impact on the environment. The outcome of the study indicated that waste can be reduced through recycling and abatement.
