Learning about the waste produced by one's own facilities is of vital importance for all manufacturing companies, regardless of their size or product sector.

In fact, Legislative Decree 152/2006 places the burden and responsibility for the correct management of waste on the producer: the producer is required to classify the waste itself in terms of assigning the EWC code (European Waste Catalogue) and any hazardous characteristics. This is followed by waste management from a documental point of view (such as the loading and unloading register, registration and use of SISTRI [Italian waste traceability monitoring system], etc.) and from a physical point of view (such as packaging and labelling, compliance with temporary storage requirements and transport of hazardous goods).

The critical point of the issue is undoubtedly the classification of waste, as incorrect classification has a drastic impact on management from an environmental, safety and transport perspective.
