Essays on extended producer responsibility and end of life vehicles
2003 (English)Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
The thesis examines the consequences of implementing extended producer responsibility (EPR for end of life vehicles (ELV). In year 2000 the European Union issued a directive demanding member to states to implement EPR for ELVs in national legislation. To analyse the economic consequences the case of car scrapping in Sweden is used as an example in all three essays. Sweden has a relative history of a car-scrapping scheme compared to other EU member states and implemented the EPR early. It was even implemented prior to the directive.
The following three essays are included in this thesis:
- Implementing extended producer responsibility: the case of Sweden's car scrapping scheme. K. H. Forslind.
- The effect of a premium in the Swedish car scrapping scheme: an econometric study. K. H. Forslind.
- Financing a car-scrapping premium: a comparison between a pay-as-you-go system and a funded system. K. H. Forslind.
