CLEANER PRODUCTION UNIT

Cleaner Production Unit (CPU) of Jordan was established in 2004 with the support of Secretariat of Economic Affairs (SECO) on behalf of the Swiss Government.
CPU is hosted at the Royal Scientific Society (RSS), a national Non-for Profit Organization. CPU aims at supportingthe industryin Jordan through Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP)approach that gives industry the opportunity to manage business effectively reducing the risks related to price volatility and disruption on material supply chains and increases energy costs.
RECP approach enables industryto enhance resource productivity by capturing saving opportunities in energy, water and raw material consumption.

CP BACKGROUND

Cleaner Production (CP) as one major field of international co-operation of the Swiss Government is an output of the Rio Conference on Development and Environment 1992. Equal to other international environmental conventions the Rio Declaration called for a vigorous transfer of environmentally sound technologies and for effective technology transfer mechanisms. In response to this demand, the Secretariat for Economic Affairs (seco) on behalf of the Swiss Government decided to develop a coherent instrument to promote technology transfer working through Cleaner Production Centers
