Waste generation from manufacturing
Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Manufacturing waste, as you would expect from the vast range of products produced and processes involved, is a very
diverse group. The waste generated depends on the technology used, the nature of the raw material processed and how much of it is discarded at the end of the chain. Very often manufacturing wastes end up in the hazardous category.
