Abstract

Moving from the traditional industrial model, in which waste is considered the norm, EU needs to develop an integrated industrial integrated systems in which everything has a next use. By exchanging industrial energy, water, by-products and materials between sectors, waste from one industry becomes raw material for another. Industry is encouraged to emulate the sustainable cycles of nature, minimizing the burden imposed on the earth and using its resources more efficiently. The raw materials industry transformation with respect to the environment is an integral part of these initiatives and efforts. The paper aims to consider what would be required for mining companies to operate as a modern advanced technology-driven business. It reviews how waste management is a business strategy and examines issues of cost reduction with respect to the environment
