3 Objectives of Rethink waste package Working through the three modules of this package you will: gain a better understanding of resource efficiency and how it applies to your site; appreciate the benefits resource efficiency can bring to you and your company; have tools (and desire!) to put resource efficiency into practice; be able to develop an action plan to implement resource efficiency. Module 1 - Slide 3 Chapter 1 - Introduction

4 What others have achieved… It’s fashionable and easy to say ‘improve resource efficiency’ – but what does it really mean? You can see what other companies have found and achieved when looking at resource efficiency: Module 1 - Slide 4 Chapter 1 - Introduction Case study

5 Module 1 of Rethink Waste: Resource Efficiency for Manufacturers Module 1 - Slide 5 Chapter 1 - Introduction MODULE 1 – DATA COLLECTION Establish what you’ve got and where you are in resource efficiency terms – including costs Module 3 – Implementing an Action Plan Prioritise your options and tips on how to implement them Module 2 – Developing an Action Plan Identify where and how you could improve resource efficiency – your options

7 Introduction – aims Welcome to Module 1 – Data Collection In this module we will introduce you to: resource efficiency – putting it in perspective; how to identify and look at resource efficiency on your site; the first steps to developing an action plan to improve the efficient use of resources. Module 1 - Slide 7 Chapter 1 - Introduction

8 A quick introduction to waste – the facts WASTE FACTS 600 million tonnes raw resources used by industry per year. On average 93% production materials are never used in the final product. 75 million tonnes of solid waste goes to landfill each year. Cost £15 billion per year. This is unsustainable, it’s uneconomic – we need to do something. Module 1 - Slide 8 Chapter 1 - Introduction More stats

9 What is ‘resource efficiency’? Looking at eliminating or reducing the use of materials or utilities (energy and water) to make a process more efficient or eliminating, reducing or recycling waste from that process. Materials Energy Water Module 1 - Slide 9 Chapter 2 - What is resource efficiency? External websites

10 What are the drivers? Reducing waste is not the only incentive to using resources efficiently. The points below should also be considered: company internal goals; legislative drivers; cost drivers; reduce company’s environmental impact. Let’s just have a quick look at each of these …. Module 1 - Slide 10 Chapter 3 – What are the drivers? G O L D E N PPORTUNITY It is also a

11 Company internal goals Implementing good environmental practice used to be considered a ‘fringe’ idea - now, most major FTSE100 companies have environmental issues at the core of their business strategy because of: image; Corporate Social Responsibility; Environmental Management Systems (ISO 14001, Eco-Management and Audit Scheme [EMAS], BS8555 – Acorn/ Green Dragon/STEMS); pressure groups; marketing. Module 1 - Slide 11 Chapter 3 – What are the drivers?

12 Key legislation Some key pieces of legislation influencing resource efficiency are: Duty of Care; Environmental Permitting Regulations (Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control Directive); Packaging; Hazardous/Special Waste; WEEE; Batteries recycling. Module 1 - Slide 12 Chapter 3 – What are the drivers? Legislation

13 Costs The cost of waste is defined as: ‘The cost of purchasing, processing and disposing of all the non-product outputs’. Improvements in resource efficiency will reduce waste and costs. Cost savings are probably the key incentive to implement resource efficiency measures. Understanding the costs is important – and they are often greater than immediately apparent…. Costs may be considered as ‘Direct’ and/or ‘Hidden’ costs. THE TRUE COST OF WASTE Cost of wasted raw materials + lost time + cost of utilities used + waste treatment costs + disposal costs = Module 1 - Slide 13 Chapter 3 – What are the drivers?

14 Direct and hidden costs Module 1 - Slide 14 Chapter 3 – What are the drivers? Direct Costs Hidden Costs Cost of raw materials/consumables Cost of wasted energy/utilities Manufacturing and production costs Maintenance Rework Time and effort Transportation Handling and storage Waste disposal costs Emission charges Sewerage and effluent charges Direct & hidden costs

15 Example of direct and hidden costs – hot water Module 1 - Slide 15 Chapter 3 – What are the drivers? Hot water tank Water heater Water, Energy Energy, Labour, Chemicals Energy, Labour Raw water tank Softener Mains water Hot (65 o C) softened water Water supply 113p/m m 3 per day 500 W UV light = 0.66p/m 3 1 m 3 15 » 65 o C 5 p/kWh = 323 p/m 3 1 m 3 Salt and regen water = 40 p/m 3 Value of hot softened water = 477 p/m 3 Sewerage charge 135p/m 3 Total cost of ‘wasted’ hot water = £6.12p/m 3 Direct cost Direct cost Hidden costs
