- Recent trends in pollution-control by the US manufacturing sector reveal that a multitude of in process'' measures are taken to generate less waste rather than treating it afterwards. The measures utilized are highly variable across sectors. Sectors that produce the largest shares of waste and spend the greatest proportion of capital outlays on pollution abatement are the most commonly reported as being involved in pursuing waste-reduction. Despite advances in waste-reduction efforts, expenditures are still mostly for end-of-pipe'' measures. 13 refs.
