This companion to Accounting for Resources, 1 tracks the life cycle
of specific elements, such as chlorine and heavy metals, in order
to estimate the generation and dissipative losses of material
wastes. The book begins with a succinct review of the life-cycle
analysis methodology and evaluates some of its weaknesses in
estimating the generation of waste. The authors propose a new
quantitative measure of the potential for environmental harm of
waste materials. They include case studies to add weight to their
proposal. Four horizontal life-cycle case studies are included; one
for chlorine and chlorine chemicals; one for mercury; one for
arsenic and cadmium; and the other for copper, lead and zinc. The
book also includes a longitudinal study of heavy metals use and
dissipation, during the period 1880-1980 with reference to the
Hudson-Raritan basin. The book concludes with an overview,
including some recommendations for future research and for policy
changes with respect to governmental statistical data collection
