Abstract
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established a waste minimization research program within the Office of Research and Development's Risk Reduction Engineering Laboratory which is the primary contact for pollution prevention research efforts concentrating on source reduction and recycling. The paper provides an overview of the Waste Minimization Branch's research programs and to discuss the progress of specific projects. Through four major program areas, the Branch identifies and evaluates relevant production operations and waste management practices, demonstrates waste reduction techniques and technologies, designs and tests prototypes of waste management systems, performs model waste minimization assessments for public and private pollution prevention operation, and participates in a variety of technology transfer activities.
