Typical hazardous wastes generated by selected manufacturing industries

Year: 2006
From collection: Vital Waste Graphics 2
Author: Emmanuelle Bournay
Description:
Industry is the top producer of waste in developed countries. A large proportion of industrial waste is hazardous, because industrial processes often involve chemicals. Cleaner production – reducing the amount of problematic components in a product and additives used in the production process – waste avoidance and a life cycle approach to waste management are attempts in the right direction.
