Nzayiramya, S., & Beghin, J. C. 2021. The Impact of China’s Environmental and Trade Policies on US Plastic and Paper Waste Exports. Undergraduate Honors Thesis. University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
This article documents major environmental and trade policy changes in China and their impact on plastic and paper waste trade between the U.S. and China and other trade partners. The article explains how U.S. plastic waste exports have been nearly annihilated by these policies. Paper waste trade is more resilient and has survived the policy shifts in China, although quite diminished.
