Abstract: Despite the use of modern technologies that aim to reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing, industrial production still brings with it some negative phenomena. This mainly relates to the production of waste materials of various types, properties, volumes and also adverse effects on the environment.Most primary raw materials are transformed into waste, so it is essential to maximize the rational use of not only all input materials and energies but also secondary waste materials from production processes.
