Oxford University Press

Human economy faces serious ecological constraints in the supply of not only energy resources, but also of a whole range non-energy mineral and non mineral material resources. The chapter discusses the issue of adequacy of deposits and supply of such materials and their recyclability. It also discusses the issue of wastes arising throughout the life cycle of a material resource and the classification of such wastes depending on their hardness so far as degradation is concerned and their respective nature of impacts on human health and the functioning of the ecosystems. It discusses specifically a few cases of pollution with important transnational externalities like pesticides pollution, acid rain and ozone depletion and the policy of their abatement by way of and global/bilateral bargain and cooperation

Keywords:   Non energy materials, recycling of wastes, wastes and pollution, bio-degradability of wastes, pesticides pollution, acid rain, Ozone depletion
