Identifying promising hazardous waste reduction technologies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The great majority of hazardous waste is produced industrially, and industrial processes, and technologies to reduce waste, are extremely varied. To select efficient technologies to reduce waste, a benefit-cost analysis maybe useful, the first step of which is to identify candidate technologies. From a review of waste minimization technologies reported for a wide range of industries, eleven basic functions associated with the use or generation of hazardous materials were identified. Similarities between technologies, where hazardous materials provided the same function and were of the same chemical type, were found. The classification is useful for identifying candidate waste reduction technologies for industrial processes.
