Human activities generate more hazard wastes (HWs) than can be handled by the technologies available. Due to the rapid growth of industrial and commercial activities in past decades, the products as well as the wastes containing Hazardous Materials (HMs) have increased drastically in both volume and type. Avoiding and treating HMs thus represents a crucial task for the industry on the pathway to a sustainable future. In the present paper, an Efficiency-Oriented Batch Reduction Procedure (EO-BRP) is introduced, which aims at supporting plants in reducing the use of HMs. EO-BRP has been validated by reducing the HMs in three different production sites. The results show an increase of efficiency by allowing the analysis of a large number of different materials in a shorter processing time.
