PRE-SME - Promoting Resource Efficiency in Small and Medium Sized Enterprises

This manual was developed for United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) to help national cleaner production center (NCPC) to design workshops and trainings, and plan resource efficiency projects. It includes practical tools for working with companies and covers the following topics:

  • Basic Concepts:
    Resource Efficiency, Life Cycle Concept, Dematerialization, Decarburization, PDCA Cycle (Plan-Do- Check-Act), benchmarking, Cleaner Production, Safer Production, Chemical Management, Integrated Management Systems
  • The PDCA cycle as a basis for continuous improvement
  • 5 thematic modules for detailed assessments (water, energy, materials, waste, chemicals)
  • Resource efficiency benchmarks for different sectors and units
  • Relevant international laws, restrictions and standards
  • Planning guide for resource efficiency programs
  • Appendices: Presentation slides for trainers, workshop exercises, work sheets, and web resources

Resource Efficiency in Production - Lowering environmental costs by the application of Cleaner Production

The book (second edition) is available  <a href=“https://www.amazon.de/Ressourceneffizienz-Produktion-Kosten-Cleaner-Production/dp/386329629X/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1455839834&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=johannes+fresner+resourceneffizienz” target=“_blank”>hier</a>

Does environmental protection save money? This is possible by decreasing the energy demand, the volume of waste water and waste at the source. Costs can be significantly reduced by using a combination of mass and energy balancing approaches, team-based approach and precautionary environmental principles. In addition, the expenditures for raw materials and supplies and energy sources are reduced.

The author Dr. Johannes Fresner has worked

with more than 200 companies worldwide and has implemented programs to increase the efficiency of energy, water and resources. In this book he shares his wide experience, together with Thomas Bürki and Henning Sittel.

Cleaner Production shows how companies:

  • Increase their resource efficiency
  • Implement environmental programs under ISO 14001
  • Save money with environmental protection
  • Reduction of the input materials and less waste production

Half is Enough - An Introduction to Cleaner Production

“Half is enough” provides a focused introduction to Cleaner Production. Cleaner Production is a precautionary and company-specific approach with the aim of minimizing emissions, waste, water and energy consumption.

The applied strategies include: good housekeeping measures, improvement of technologies, chemical management, recycling, etc. Application guarantees a reduction in waste, emissions, and economic costs.
“Half is enough” explains the principles of Cleaner Production and demonstrates show these measures are applied. It describes a variety of practical tips and case studies from companies. Also, it includes worksheets and checklists for direct application.
