Environmental Waste Stream Mapping

Waste Stream Mapping (WSM) provides a VSM like tool that will help companies identify waste stream opportunities focusing on energy, solid waste, water or hazardous wastes. Participants will learn how things currently operate, identify improvement areas, develop an implementation plan and finally make the change for an environmentally-preferred future state.

You will learn how green thinking can be applied to reduce or remove waste stream output. Enable visualization of how processes create waste and where opportunities exist to reduce or eliminate waste, thereby helping the environment.
