Reducing the generation of industrial and other wastes can be achieved in many ways. Process chemistry can be changed, potential waste streams can be recycled within a manufacturing process or back into the process; process technology and/or equipment can be modified to produce products more efficiently, resulting in less waste; changes in raw materials (feedstocks) can lead to fewer waste streams or less-hazardous waste streams; finally changes in the end products from manufacturing operations can, in some instances, be made so as to affect the types and quantities of wastes emitted. EPA's waste minimization research, development and demonstration programs described in the paper address several of these issues.
