END OF PIPE TECHNOLOGIES EXPENDITURE

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Expenditure on “end-of-pipe” technologies used to treat, handle or dispose of emissions and wastes from production. This type of spending is normally easily identified even within the context of ancillary activity because it is usually directed toward an “add on” facility which removes, transforms or reduces emissions and discharges at the end of the production process.
