Economic Questions of Waste Treatment

Arpad Ferencz, Marta Notari, Melinda Czegledi and Peter Levai

Abstract—Strategies management of anthropic activities must, more than ever, take in account not only the environmental legislation corpus, but the concepts and principles that are used to build the public policies. Most of the times, it considers also economical and financial procedures (taxes and grants) and technical tools analysis (systemic analysis and flows balances). Agriculture is highly concerned because of its natural relations to environment and also because of its weight as a production /consumption chain. In most cases, spreading is used for soil restitution of nutrients but with unbalanced flows resulting in environmental impacts. It is obvious that territorial regulation of a « back to soil strategy » must be built on the aptitudes of soils to be amended; crops to be fertilized; farms to gain profit; neighbours to agree; natural areas and resources to be protected and exploited. What kind of natural cycle is pertinent for a specific flow? Where and how is it stored in nature?

Index Terms—agriculture, economic strategies, environmental management, organic waste.
