Waste minimisation audits

Wasteful use of materials leads to substantial financial losses and increased environmental impacts. The Green Consultancy can help you address these issues by carrying out a waste minimisation audit. In most cases we can guarantee cost savings that are substantially greater than our fee, and have a rapid payback period.

A thorough audit with valuable outcomes

In manufacturing, wasted raw materials, rejected finished product and excessive packaging – and the inefficient processing and disposal of unavoidable waste, including missed opportunities for reuse and recycling – can seriously reduce profitability.

We tailor our waste minimisation audits to suit your requirements, but in manufacturing situations an audit usually comprises the following steps:

Step 1: ‘Hotspot’ analysis

An analysis based on a site survey and all available relevant data to determine the most cost-effective waste minimisation opportunities.

Step 2: Review of priorities

A review of the analysis results with the client, and agreement of priority areas.

Step 3: Detailed investigation

A detailed site investigation to define opportunities in the chosen priority areas, including:

  • Process flow exercise and waste mapping for each production line
  • Examination of line breakdown data in fine detail

All relevant issues will be considered, including:

  • Reasons for line breakdown or slowing
  • Overflow storage capacity
  • Packaging cost savings
  • Alternative waste treatment
  • Procurement
  • Cost and environmental impact of transport

Step 4: Reporting

A draft report followed by the final version, (produced further to client comments and an on-site presentation and discussion). The report will include:

  • Waste reduction opportunities within agreed ROI limit
  • Details of cost, environmental and financial benefits (both upstream and downstream)
  • Measurements, data and calculations.
