Environmentally Sound Technologies means :
Environmentally Sound Technologies protect the environment and are less polluting, use resources in a more sustainable manner, recycle more of their wastes and products, and handle residual wastes in a more acceptable manner than other technologies. In the context of pollution, they are “process and product technologies” that generate low or no waste, for the prevention of pollution. They also cover “end of the pipe” technologies for treatment of pollution after it has been generated. They are total systems, which include knowhow, procedures, goods and services, and equipment as well as organisational and managerial procedures.
