This has imposed new conditions and constraints for waste management, the description of which is the objective of this thesis. LÄS MER

Sammanfattning : This study investigates the application of life cycle thinking (LCT) and life cycle assessment (LCA) in the field of waste management from perspectives based in the social sciences. LCT is explored through the theoretical construct of regimes, drawing theoretical resources from a combination of the ‘pragmatic turn’, the economics of conventions and transition theory. LÄS MER
