Waste minimization through shared saving is a waste reducing strategy that focuses more on controlling what goes into a manufacturing process than on what comes out of it. Its goal is to reduce waste (toxic and otherwise) and to make the production cycle more cost effective, in part by reducing the environmental clean-up problems that can result. Re-thinking how raw supplies are purchased and used can result in dramatic reductions in waste output and production cost. "Shared Savings" is a proven chemical supply strategy that is being widely adopted, since it accomplishes these waste minimization goals very effectively. Environmental and manufacturing engineers need good practical guidance on how to implement these strategies, and this book aims to show them how.
