To deal with the complexity of recycling, a wide variety of models have been developed, each serving an explicit purpose. All these models have defined analytical boundaries: no one model captures the full system. Often the international dimension of physical and economic relationships in recycling is ignored. This is inconsistent with the current trend of the increasing importance of international trade in recycling-related material flows. Therefore, there is a need for an international material-product chain (MPC) that allows for international interaction between various stages in the life cycle.
