- Finding innovative ways to reduce waste streams generated at Department of Energy (DOE) sites by 50% by the year 2000 is a challenge for DOE`s waste minimization efforts. The Benchmarking for Waste Minimization project examines the usefulness of benchmarking as a waste minimization tool, specifically for infrastructure-related, common waste streams at DOE organizations. A team of process experts and benchmarking consultants from a variety of DOE sites used a 12-step benchmarking process to examine the liquid photographic waste stream and identify best-in-class industry partners for an information exchange. The site visits yielded strategies for source reduction, recycle/recovery of components, regeneration/reuse of solutions, treatment of residuals, as well as best management practices.
