In what is a first attempt to incorporate environmental impacts into a global macro-economic model, this paper shows how a post processing environment sector has been added to the SARUM/AREAM model. Again as a first look at environmental stresses caused by economic activities, the paper concentrates on solid wastes particularly from mining activities, as these are seen as producing the largest solid waste problems in the future. This analysis is carried out within various trading policies that Australia may follow and the consequental trade off between standard of living and level of environment stress that may result from such policies. The paper does show that environment impacts are tied to how Australia will react to global demands for resources and that assessment of resources and environment issues must take into consideration global interdepependence.
