Abstract

Waste minimisation in process industries consists of source reduction and recycling. It is possible to save money by reducing waste treatment and disposal costs, to improve the quality of products, to reduce potential environmental liabilities, to protect public and worker’s health, to increase safety and to protect the environment. Waste minimization by source reduction and recycling is the cheapest method for waste reduction. It can be adopted by all process industries: textile, pulp and paper, leather, food, chemical, oil, ceramic, pharmaceutical, metallurgical.
