End of pipe techniques
Similar term(s): end-of-pipe technologies, EOP, end-of-the-pipe.
Methods used to remove already formed contaminants from a stream of air,
water, waste, product or similar. These techniques are called 'end-of-pipe' as
they are normally implemented as a last stage of a process before the stream is
disposed of or delivered.
Technologies such as scrubbers on smokestacks and catalytic convertors on
automobile tailpipes that reduce emissions of pollutants after they have formed.
