ERA Environmental – Automated Guidance Tool for Sustainable Solid Waste Minimization.
“Solid waste is frequently overlooked in many industrial supply chains. In the United States alone, annual industrial waste production is estimated to be upwards of 7.6 billion tons and roughly 50% of the 292.4 million tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) generated each year is landfilled. Although the negative impacts of landfilling are widely understood and studied, many manufacturers have limited knowledge and guidance on how to properly assess, manage, and dispose of their waste using a systematic, life-cycle approach to solid waste minimization. Inspired by this gap in knowledge, ERA set out to create a strategic tool for both experienced and novice users in industrial settings to reduce the amount of waste that is sent to landfills by their facilities.”
