Considerations on Sustainable Development and Its Perspective in Romania
Like in the most countries, especially in Eastern Europe, present pollution control systems into Romania are based mainly on “end of pipe” approach. Because of the large number of different waste sources involving a multitude of contaminants potentially present, pollution control is generally both ineffective in solving all environmental problems, and financially expensive requiring significant capital in terms of investment and operating costs.
The “pollution prevention at the source” is a better approach of environmental protection and it can result in economic benefits through reduced waste treatment costs and reduced costs for material input.
The paper describes some basic considerations about paradigm shift from pollution control to pollution prevention, the state of sustainable development and its perspective in Romania.
