Indian non-ferrous metals industry has witnessed rapid growth over the past two decades. This progress has brought about environmental degradation as well. The liberalisation, globalisation. and openness earlier introduced by the Government offer every scope for emphasising and validating ecological issues. This coupled with criteria adherence to conventional approaches involving re¬source utilisation has contributed significantly to the generation of liquid and solid waste in non-ferrous production industry. Developing countries in recent years have started shifting their feature of business strategy of environmental management from remediation technology to pro-active green solutions, that avoid the pollution mess in the first place. The paper reviews current knowledge of end of pipe technologies and their management, approaches to waste minimization options through reduction of source wastes, reduction of recycling and re-use. The paper also examines the various approaches to effective technologies to destroy or treat the wastes generated.
