Increasingly it has become clear that to achieve sustainability on an ongoing basis, it is necessary to address the manner in which production and disposal cycles are integrated so that economic resource efficiencies achieved will serve to minimize harmful and wasteful environmental pollution. i.e. ,to facilitate “closing the loop” in the “circular economy” of materials and natural resources. The pace of technological change is creating new possibilities for supply chain integration and the development entirely as well as new products with associated new global materials consumption patterns and modified waste disposition requirements, These developments potentially can facilitate the rapid development of existing and of newer products environmental pollution potential.
