“Although waste is unavoidable in industrial processes, many companies are turning toward business strategies that seek to treat waste with minimal environmental impact — or even better, prevent waste altogether

In the past, waste was simply discharged without any treatment. This occurred until authorities began enforcing regulations. Early regulations proved to be successful in reducing waste streams. However, current challenges related to declining resources and increasing energy costs require a different and more proactive approach to waste. In some cases, waste streams might prove to be a valuable product, and waste minimization, as well as energy efficiency, maybe game-changing advantages for an organization. Waste minimization can be part of project execution for new-build installations, as well as revamps of existing facilities. Multidisciplinary teams can select activities to minimize waste and enhance cost efficiency. Overall, companies that invest in waste minimization as part of a sustainability strategy can financially outperform competitors who follow a less sustainable agenda.”
