This is another diagram from the paper on mainstreaming urban metabolism. We previously showcased an image from Rio de Janeiro. This graph displays de results from an Abbreviated Urban Metabolism exercise on Bejing, China. In contrast to the image from Rio de Janeiro, there is less of a breakdown of the final destination of each material flow. Even though the image contains less information, it does make it less cluttered and easier to understand.
