Mauritius: Industrial Waste Assessment Project to Be Implemented

press release

Government has taken note of the implementation of an Industrial Waste Assessment project by the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Consumer Protection, with the assistance of the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation.

One of the main objectives is to develop a pool of expertise among both public officials and enterprises on industrial waste characterisation for improved identification, characterisation and quantification.

The project also aims at generating data and other information, through the industrial waste characterisation, that can determine opportunity for a national and regional industrial symbiosis programme, as well as for setting up a recycling industry.

Another objective is to determine amendments that may be required in the legislative framework on industrial waste management.

The project would involve industrial waste characterisation exercise in some 25 enterprises in the textile, agro-industry, seafood, chemical and printing sectors.
