FLOWS OF RESIDUALS

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
There are three classes of residuals flows. The largest and most significant flows are from the national economy to the national environment. Secondly, the discharge from production which is made directly into a different environment. The last type of residual flow is the transmission of residuals from one environmental sphere to another by natural mechanisms; for example, residuals carried in air currents or flowing water bodies.
