WASTE MANAGEMENT AND GREEN PRODUCTIVITYIN INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE
Keywords:Productivity, Environmental performance index, Green productivity
Increased productivity raises many environmental problems. The production process creates material and energy discharges that will burden the environment. The purpose of the present study are to identify the problems in the production process that affect productivity, to measure the levels of productivity and Environmental Performance Index (EPI) and to devise alternative solutions to improvements by using theGreen Productivity approach.This research is applied research, which is directed at taking action in changing the state of competition and solving real environmental problems.Results of the study were the utilization of solid waste of fish offal, heads and bones into composts, the utilization of fish-steaming wastewater intoa fish paste and the recycling of fish-washing wastewater using the filtration process.Solid and liquid waste were utilized in order to reduce the volume of waste generated which ultimately would result in an increased productivity and environmental performance.
