Meadows and the waste problem: French translation of a 1974 chapter titled “The dynamics of solid waste generation”

In 1974, Dennis Meadows and his MIT research team published a book titled “Towards global equilibrium: the collected papers”, which has never been translated into French. Christophe Mangeant, an engineer at the French Atomic Energy and Alternative Energies Commission , translated the book’s chapter (number 7) which focuses on the issues surrounding waste produced by our economic model. “Towards global equilibrium” is the sequel to Meadows’ highly controversial and acclaimed 1972 publication, “The limits to growth”. 

The French translation of the book’s chapter on waste is available here.
