From HAZAN to WASAN

N Blundell, D Shaw

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The article discusses the waste and source-matter analysis (WASAN) group workshop methodology designed to minimize the generation of avoidable hazardous waste. Several areas analyzed using WASAN are the behavior of a process, waste minimization inside that process, and the consequences for waste production from upstream and downstream processes falling outside of design. A group from the Enriched Uranium Residues Recovery Plant (EURRP) in Springfields, England used WASAN to analyze the generation of plastic bag waste.
