Waste Minimization refers to the use of source reduction and/or environmentally sound recycling methods prior to energy recovery, treatment, or disposal of wastes.

Waste minimization does not include waste treatment, that is, any process designed to change the physical, chemical, or biological composition of wastestreams.

For example. In signing Waste minimization national plan book waste minimization certification statement, those generators who have not been exempted by statute or regulation from the duty to make a waste minimization certification under section (b) of RCRA are also certifying that they have complied with the waste minimization requirements.”.

Handbook of Solid Waste Management and Waste Minimization Technologies is an essential tool for plant managers, process engineers, environmental consultants, and site remediation specialists that focuses on practices for handling a broad range of industrial solid waste problems.

It responds to your laboratory's critical need to have readily available techniques and concepts for waste minimization and pollution prevention.

Prepare a waste minimisation plan. Identify the possible types of waste produced (e.g. bricks, timber, plasterboard), potential recyclers and methods to reduce or avoid the waste before you begin. An example of a waste minimisation plan can be found at ; Agree which party or parties receive financial benefits of recycling.

Also presented are calculation methods for determining air-waste-solid wastes material balances, informational requirements and waste reduction analysis.
