NPV = Net Present Value
PP = Payback Period
PI = Profitability Index

Additional Guidance for Completing Table 2:

  • Ensure all reduction plans/projects, goal dates and remarks are current.
  • Waste stream ID numbers and names of wastes should be consistent between Table 1 and Table 2;
  • "Waste stream affected" can be the same as the "Name of waste", but it can also refer to the process or production area at the facility that generates the waste stream (this is left up to the submitter's discretion);
  • In the "Reduction plans/projects" column, briefly describe any feasible waste reduction measures that were proposed within the body of the report. Projects/plans can be broken down into incremental steps (e.g., conduct investigation of technology, complete pilot study, full scale implementation) with goal dates spanning several years, if necessary;
  • In the "Estimated waste reduction" column, please provide an estimate of the anticipated waste reduction that will result from implementing the proposed waste reduction plan/project. The estimate should be provided in tons, and can be based on a formal calculation or a simple estimate using operator knowledge of the waste stream affected;
  • In the next two columns, indicate the method used to calculate the Return on Investment (ROI) using one of the options provided below the table, and provide the estimated return accordingly (Note: An ROI might not apply to all waste reduction plans/projects);
  • The "Goal date" should be the estimated date (Note: this can be a day, month, year, etc.) by which the reduction plan/project will be implemented. The goal date should be based on the implementation schedule described in the body of your report.
