WasteTrans-NL Model

The model for the Dutch waste management transition case, i.e. WasteTrans, is a system dynamics model, which is developed using Vensim software. The model covers 3 waste management options (i.e. land-filling, incineration, recycle/re-use), and the behaviour of 4 actor groups (i.e. municipalities, waste contractors, government, opinion groups) with respect to these available waste management options. In the following section, we will introduce the basic model structures and formulations that are used to represent change processes regarding the options, as well as regarding the behaviour of the actors.
