Publications and Research Papers (http://www.environment.gov.au/epg/environet/eecp/publications.html)
This page contains several research reports on cleaner production. Some are in PDF format and thus require the Adobe Acrobat Reader. To save the document for offline viewing, right click and use the 'save as' option.
Main topics are the National Strategy for Cleaner Production, Cleaner Production Handbook for Local Government and other Fact Sheets.
This page is actually a directory of case studies of innovative solutions applied to environmental problems. It contains links for a category and keyword search. This site is well worth your visit.
Industry Expertise (http://www.environment.gov.au/epg/environet/expertise/index.html)" The Environment Industry Expertise Database is a detailed list of Australian companies and government organisations providing technologies, instrumentation, monitoring equipment, and consulting services including engineering, information technology, and legal services relating to environmental issues and problems." It provides different search methods and a link to register an organisation.
Environmental Education (http://www.environment.gov.au/epg/environet/education/index.html)This page links to a database of Australian environmental sources at tertiary level.
Research & Development (http://www.environment.gov.au/epg/environet/research/index.html)This page links to a database on the Research and Development on Pollution Prevention.
Hazardous Wastes (http://www.environment.gov.au/epg/environet/swtt/swtt.html)This 'Hazardous Waste Treatment Technologies Directory' provides a source of information on technologies capable of treating scheduled waste in Australia. Start your search by following the 'technology reviews' link.
This report is based on:
CMPS&F - Environment Australia
Appropriate Technologies for the Treatment of Scheduled Wastes
Review Report Number 4 - November 1997
It is a very detail and comprehensive report from the introduction to the different treatment technologies for hazardous waste treatment.
