Reduction of waste generation by use of efficient manufacturing processes, reduction of disposable material in consumer goods and/or increase of products durability.

Within the EU countries alone, it is estimated that between 600 000 and 800 000 tonnes of chlorinated solvents were used in 1989; of that, methylene chloride accounted for the largest portion of approximately 160 000 tonnes, followed by trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE), and 1, 1, 1trichloroethane (1, 1, 1-TCA) at approximately 130000 tonnes each (CEC, 1992). Residual wastes from the use of these chlorinated solvents in the EU countries is estimated to be about 200 000 tonnes, with only approximately 90 000 tonnes being recycled.

3 (continued) 38 Global dimensions of waste disposal practices amongst the developed countries, but no single technology can universally be applied with equal success to all waste types and in all geographical regions. In fact, treatment processes can be, and usually are, combined into process trains for more effective removal of hazardous materials from waste stream. 3 presents a summary of the treatment options commonly employed in a variety of waste management programmes. It is apparent that several countries have been relying predominantly on landfill for disposing of their waste.
