End-of –the-pipe waste treatment techniques. In the industries. the concept of waste prevention and reduction can workout to be more effective. Facilitating control of environmental practices by a company‘s management. the top management of a company or an industry may not be aware of the factual situation of their industry from environmental angle. Assessing compliance with regulatory requirements. wherein all the wastes are carried to a common facility for treatment. The management should be able to periodically review those environmental practices of the company to formulate / modify the company’s environmental policy accordingly. It is also very essential to periodically monitor this aspect. In this growing complexity of problems. especially in case of the multiplicity of manufacturing product in the same premises. The waste generation may vary hourly. Thus the regulatory risk can overcome and effective steps taken for pollution control.Environmental Statement Report 2010 . and Placing environmental information in the public domain. is proving to be ineffective and uneconomical due to the complexity of problems associated with waste generation. documented.
