Although still it is an emergent activity in Brazil, the recycling already occupies an important part of raw materials of some Brazilian industrial segments, following a world-wide trend that combines reduction of costs, rationalization in the energy use and moderation of the antrpicas pressures of the economic activities. The extreme growth of the residues of the productive activities and the families, and the increasing decurrent ambient degradation of them had generated an ample concern with the treatment and the forms of use to prevent a simple deposit in the nature.

For the SEBRAE (1998) incompatibility does not exist some between an income-producing enterprise and the ambient management.
