Resource reduction and waste minimisation studies

Vysus conducts studies for clients on resource reduction and waste minimisation involving the systematic assessment and implementation of strategies to reduce resource consumption and minimise waste generation across various sectors and processes. These studies identify opportunities for improving resource efficiency, reducing environmental impact, and enhancing economic performance by minimising waste generation, conserving resources, and optimising resource use throughout the product lifecycle.

The studies can involve:

Resource assessment: Conducting a comprehensive assessment of resource use and waste generation within a specific process, system, or organisation. This involves identifying the types and quantities of resources consumed, including raw materials, energy, water, and other inputs, as well as the types and volumes of waste generated, such as solid waste, wastewater, emissions, and byproducts.

Waste stream characterization: Analysing the composition and characteristics of waste streams to identify opportunities for waste reduction, recycling, reuse, or recovery. This includes quantifying the types and volumes of waste generated, assessing the potential for recycling or recovery of valuable materials, and identifying opportunities for waste prevention or source reduction.

Lifecycle assessment (LCA): Conducting a lifecycle assessment to evaluate the environmental impacts associated with resource consumption and waste generation throughout the entire lifecycle of a product, process, or service. This involves assessing the environmental impacts of resource extraction, production, use, and end-of-life disposal or recycling, and identifying opportunities to minimise environmental burdens and improve sustainability.

Identification of waste reduction opportunities: Identifying and prioritising opportunities for waste reduction and resource optimisation based on the findings of resource assessments, waste stream characterisation, and lifecycle assessments. This may include supporting implementation measures to improve production processes, optimise resource use, minimise material losses, and reduce energy consumption.

Technological and process improvements: Implementing technological and process improvements to reduce resource consumption and waste generation. This may involve recommendations to upgrade equipment and machinery, optimising production processes, implementing cleaner production technologies, and adopting resource-efficient practices and techniques.

Monitoring and performance tracking: Establishing systems for monitoring, measuring, and tracking resource consumption, waste generation, and performance indicators to evaluate the effectiveness of waste minimisation measures and identify areas for further improvement. This involves setting targets, collecting data, analysing trends, and reporting on progress towards waste reduction and resource optimisation goals.
