Yale Stocks and Flows (STAF) Project



The Stocks and Flows (STAF) project evaluates current and historical flows of specific technologically-significant materials, determining the stocks available in different types of reservoirs and the flows among the reservoirs, and assessing the environmental and policy implications of the results. It is based at the Center for Industrial Ecology of the Yale University School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.

Detailed Information:
Applying the methods of material flow analysis (MFA), the STAF project started its work on copper and zinc and produced complete contemporary cycle characterizations for all countries using significant amounts of these materials, nine world regions, and the planet as a whole. The project is also studying other metals (nickel, silver, iron, chromium, tungsten, tin, and lead) as well as some selected radioisotopes (cobalt 60, cesium 137) and lumber.
