Abstract:

The financial justification for pollution prevention investment often depends on the ability of the proponent of the action to accurately reflect the longterm liability costs associated with alternative disposal methods available to generators of hazardous waste. Using microeconomic theory, a model has been developed which uses a liability factor to predict the long-term liability costs inherent in landfilling hazardous waste
