Undercapitalized waste use schemes
Nature: Effective use of waste products is blocked by undercapitalization of waste-use plans. The highly industrialized nations have the ability, because of technological advancement, to use much of the waste products of the world. The problem lies in the lack of provision by these nations of the necessary financial incentives and guarantees to industry for waste collection and centralization schemes. Industries are thereby hindered from investing in further development of ways to recycle unfinished products on a low-risk basis.
