About the product
The theory behind cleaner production is simply a preventative approach to environmental protection. This publication discusses the efforts being made towards cleaner production in countries of the APEC region by large and small industries. A sequel to 'Cleaner Production Worldwide', it shows how regional firms are achieving both environmental protection and economic benefits from practising cleaner production. The issues discussed include: saving water and waste in food processing; recycling coolant and treating oily wastewater from machining; reducing waste in polyester production and recycling, substitution and fibre recovery.
