On the other hand environmental pollution not only created problems for people living in industrial areas, but also resulted in global climate change, the world community could not being disturbed with it. The documents on sustainable development noted that the production modernization and the introduction of new clean technologies on the one hand, can significantly improve the quality and reduce the costs of production, and on the other hand, reduce the waste polluting the environment. Reducing the specific consumption of raw materials and energy for production, it is possible to conserve natural resources, reduce emissions and discharges of harmful substances into the environment and to reduce the accumulation of solid waste in dumps. The money saved on resources can be directed to the establishment of protected objects, for even the most so-phisticated, non-waste technology can’t do without them nowadays.
