What is the utility and the actual definition of a "reference flow"?
The more semantically precise term is actually "determining flow".
The definition is: "Flow of an activity for which a change will affect
the production volume of the activity"

The utility is to be able to distinguish the flow that drives (causes)
the activity from flows that are caused by the activity.

Now I see,
so, as you suggested earlier, a waste can be the determining flow as input of a waste disposal activity that produces something else, because we need to dispose of this waste.

Is this correct?

Thanks a lot for the clarification.
