Environmental and Waste Management Industry Global Outlook Report

16 Sep

The environment and waste management industry is subject to various laws and regulations governing the environment across the world; known as “cradle to grave” laws here in the United States that regulate the treatment, handling and disposal of hazardous substances and the discharge of pollutants. Editors at Global Industry Analysts recently published a report on the global outlook for the industry. The following is their press release concerning the report.

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) Sept. 16, 2008 — The environment industry is concerned with treatment of waste, pollution, and the ecosystem. An ineffective waste disposable system leads to damage of biodiversity and natural ecosystem, greenhouse gases, global warming, and destruction of natural resources and fossil fuels. Most of the manufacturing, distribution and research operations of myriad industries are affected by environmental laws and regulations related to water discharges, air emissions, the handling and disposal of solid/ hazardous wastes and the remediation of contamination associated with the use and disposal of hazardous substances. Globally, the environment and waste management industry is subject to various local, state, and federal environmental laws and regulations including the Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act, Solid Waste Disposal Act, Comprehensive Emergency Response, Compensation and Liability Act, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, Drinking Water Act, Toxic Substances Control Act, and related state and local laws and regulations collectively called “Environmental Laws”. Such environmental laws impose limitations on discharge of pollutants into the air/water, necessitate the installation of pollution control equipment, set up standards for the storage, treatment, transportation, and disposal of solid as well as hazardous wastes, and enforce other requirements to protect public health and the environment.

Developed countries dominate environmental waste management products market based on availability of advanced waste process and prevention technologies, instruments, and information systems. Demand for air pollution control technologies is more profound in China while in Eastern Europe demand for environmental products and services such as process control, end-of-pipe technology, site remediation and restoration services and technologies is growing rapidly. Among all waste management products and technologies, water equipment and chemicals is expected to exemplify robust demand due to large export market for wastewater management systems. Over the years, demand for solid waste management equipment is expected to be subtle due to decline in volume of solid waste as a result of implementation of waste minimization and pollution prevention programs.
