Zero Waste: Management Practices for Environmental Sustainability presents approaches for resource management centered on reducing waste and reusing and recycling materials. It aims to save energy by reducing energy consumption associated with extracting, processing, and transporting raw materials and waste, and also to reduce and eventually eliminate the need for landfills and incinerators. This book presents the various principles, methods, and tools that can be used to address different issues in the areas of industrial waste reduction and sustainability. It examines how to eliminate waste at the source and at all points of a supply chain, and how to shift from the current one-way linear resource model to a sustainable "closed-loop" system.

  • Proposes strategies for businesses to reduce and reuse waste with a goal of reaching a zero waste status.
  • Focuses on how mitigating waste and promoting recycling can save vast amounts of energy.
  • Explains how the zero waste approach would be a key measure to ensure environmental sustainability and help to offset global climate change.
