Tasaki T., Yamakawa H. (2009) A Review of Research Approaches for Waste Prevention and Reuse of Waste. Sardinia 2009, 12th International waste management and landfill symposium proceedings, CD-ROM
We reviewed research approaches for waste prevention (reduction) and reuse (referred to “2Rs”). First, we examined three fundamental issues of difficulties in conducting 2R research. We then identified three key elements for promoting the 2Rs and seven types of 2R research. Finally, we categorized 2R behaviours and linked these behaviours to outcomes in order to establish academic fundamentals of 2R research.
