Research Topic

What is a waste? A potential resource to favor a sustainable transition. Evidence from the practice.

About this Research Topic

The sustainable transition implies great challenges in which the economic system is responsible to re-organize its structure in order to intercept social value and tackle Climate Change.

Waste management is a topic well discussed in literature, however some practices are very far to implement circular economy models in a real context. Consequently, the use of landfill site is a technological option adopted by several decision-makers. This Research Topic concerns both developed and developing nations.

‘What is a waste? A potential resource to favour a sustainable transition. Evidence from the practice’ is based on the application of environmentally friendly practices, as reuse, recycling and recovery, performed on the real case-studies. It involves all typologies of waste (e.g. e-waste, end-of-life vehicle, municipal solid waste) asking an empirical approach aimed to demonstrate benefits associated to the circularity of resources. Policy makers, managers, academics and firms can cooperate to identify potential solutions showing as waste is a potential resource.

Empirical studies are welcomed in this collection. In particular, potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

• Economic analysis of waste management
• Environmental analysis of waste management
• Social analysis of waste management
• Identification of new indicators able to assess the performance of waste management
• Technical improvements in the field of waste management
• Comparison among countries in terms of waste management performance
• Definition of new methodologies and their application with a case study


Keywords: Circular Economy, E-waste, End-of-life vehicle, Municipal solid waste, Waste Management


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
