Machine learning applied to Material Flow Analysis - Journal of Industrial ecology spotlight

Material flows in and out of road structures and pavements between 1980 and 2017. Underlying data for Figure 3 are available in a table entitled “Figure 3” of Supporting Information S2
The Journal of Industrial Ecology shared the article “Machine learning-based stocks and flows modeling of road infrastructure” by Babak Ebrahimi, Leonardo Rosado and Holger Wallbaum. The paper introduces a new method using machine learning applied to material flow analysis as an alternative to achetype modeling to study road infrastructure. Holger Wallbaum says this was the first attempt to apply machine learning based methods to MFA but is confident in developing this method further with SB’s newest colleague, Maud Lanau .
