    Hi there,The following sentence is taken from a passage which is on "green packaging". Before this sentence, some sources of problem are mentioned such as "modern living, plastic products, man-made goods". What can be the exact paraphrase of the sentence? What's the meaning of "just" here? Has an ellipsis occurred?"Just as much of a problem is industrial waste."Thanks.

    It means that the problem is as serious as industrial waste.
