Extraction conversion Unsustainable Product Life Cycle Material Flows & Life Cycle Concepts Discharges to air, land, water in all stages Stuff Dispose Manufacturing Use
12,000,000 new cars/light trucks made annually
about 20,000 parts per unit and most are out-sourced
Total finished product is 24,000,000 tons
Estimate about 3 lbs. non-product output per lb. of finished product
cleaners, lubricants, scrap, process sludges, etc.
could be much higher if process waters included
Non-product output approximately 72,000,000 tons
Most in the suppliers facilities
auto company & public ultimately pays for waste .
