  • Evaluation of the Recycling of biomass resources by using the waste accout
    HAYASHI Takashi, YAMAMOTO Mitasu, MASUDA Kiyotaka, Studies in Regional Science, 34, (3) 289 - 295,   2003 , A part of biomass resources are used for agricultural production and are recycled for materials of other activities, such as compost made from livestock excrement or rice plant straw used for litter. However, these activities are not revealed in economic statistics because of bartering and trading without any charge. It is necessary to understand transactions of biomass resources in agricultural sector properly.The purpose of this soudy is to propose an accounting system for evaluating biomass resources used in the agricultural sector, as well as to understand the status of wastes and environmental pressure arising from agricultural production.The waste acounting system can be adapted to the case of the agricultural sector to grasp the status of transactions of organic resources. It can also show the amount of environmental pressure arising from agricultural production in addition to the amount of biomass resources and their disposal and recycling. Finally, as an example of the use of information obtained from the accounting system, reducing environmental pressure is estimated if imported rice plant straw is substituted for domestic supplies.The results of the analysis are 1) Environmental pressure reduction due to reduction of burnt straw is 2, 089 ton-SPM, 1, 572 ton-CH4 and 25 ton-N2O in the case without regional constraint of straw supply, 2) When considering the regional constraint of the straw supply, the effect is reduced to 71% of the total. 3) Chubu area shows the largest effect of environmental pressure reduction.

  • Estimation and Consideration of the Waste Account in Hokkaido prefecture
    YAMAMOTO Mitasu, Studies in Regional Science, 33, (1) 33 - 44,   2002 , The integrated environmental and economic accounting is a satellite account of SNA which represents interrelations between the economy and the environment. On the hand, the environmental expenditure account and the waste account are satellite accounts of the integrated environmental and economic accounting, these represents a more detailed relation between specific environmental issues and the economy. In this paper, I tried to estimate the waste account in Hokkaido prefecture that focused on waste/recycling under the concepts of the SEEA.As a result of this trial estimation, external diseconomies as the imputed environmental costs caused by waste treatment are 70, 214 million yen in Hokkaido prefecture in 1995. The breakdown of external diseconomies are 133 million yen for air pollution, 4. 950million yen for global warming, and 65, 131 million yen for the final disposal of waste. And the consumption of industry-related waste treatment services was 53, 222 million yen, the consumption of government-related waste treatment services was 46, 695 million yen, and total amount of output of recyclable goods was 1, 434 million yen in Hokkaido prefecture in 1995. In the other words, the waste treatment costs actually spent are 99, 917 million yen (=consumption of waste treatment services), but the additional waste treatment costs expected to be spent are 70, 214 million yen (=the imputed environmental costs).In Japan, the waste treatment costs actually spent were 394.7 billion yen, and the additional waste treatment costs expected to be spent are 100.8 billion yen in 1995. The share in former of Hokkaido prefecture is 3.2%, and the share in latter is 7%. So it is necessary to decrease wastes and GHGs in Hokkaido prefecture.

  • Structure of Evaluating the Living Environment by Urban Inhabitants:A Case Study of River Environment in Urban Areas
    YAMAMOTO Mitasu, KATOH Shuichi, Studies in Regional Science, 25, (1) 235 - 249,   1994 , During the periods of high economic growth, river environment in urban areas has undergone a remarkable change and lost the amenities, caused by the improvements are given priority to flood control and water use.Recently, ensuring the amenity and healthiness in river environment that is regarded as important with the improvement of civil life. Thus, the conservation of ecology, improving water quality and water amentiry is promoting as political action.This study purposed to obtain an expressly information for the planning of river improvement which towards a high quality life. For the purpose, we investigated inhabitant's consciousness of evaluating river environment as a living environmental factor by questionnaire survey, and attempted to explain the structure of inhabitant's consciousness as quantitative relation by using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) technique. In result, following acknowledgments were given.1) There is a growing need for the improvement of river environment about water quality, water amenity and ecology, inhabitants recognize that rever environment is a part of the nature in living environment.2) To confirmed flood control is the most important function that based on giving the largest priority (53.1%) to 'flood control, ' and to keep safety that is the most basic function.3) According to that 'environmental function' is given priority (28.1%) in the second place, inhabitants have a need of the nature in river space. It also means that 'conservation of ecology' has higher priority (10.2%) compared with 15 items on same level of the hierarchy structure.4) According to that 'estimating ecological river environement' is given the largest priority (41.0%) in alternatives, the conservation of ecology in river space has a direction that satisfies inhabitant's preference.These results give suggestions a growing need to measure and evaluate 'nonuse value' of river environment.

  • Life Cycle Assessment of Dairy Production Systems Including Material Cycles of Grasslands
    Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research(基盤研究(B)),   2001  - 2003 , Katsuhiko DEMURA, The environmental problems associated with dairy farms are not only local problems such as water pollution and offensive odor, but also global problems including global warming and acidification. Quantifying dairy farm's environmental problems is necessary for the disclosure of the environmental information of dairy farms. In this study, we use LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) to quantify them. LCA studies the environmental aspects and potential impacts throughout a product's life (i.e. cradle-to-grave) from raw material acquisition through to its production, use and disposal (ISO14040). We have...
