The paper presents two complementary quantitative analyses using a macroeconomic model of the Austrian economy, which links monetary and physical waste-related data. First, the economic and environmental impacts of the current Austrian waste economy are evaluated in terms of business-models for waste collection, treatment and secondary raw material use. Related impacts on CO2 emissions are quantified. Second, potential future employment effects that can result from further development of the Austrian waste economy are assessed.
