Abstract: This study report examines the importance of the environmental audits and evaluates their current practices. This report also highlights various salient features of industrial waste audit with special references to the brewing factories in Viet Nam. Industrial waste audit is an essential and critical part of an environmental audit. It plays an important role in achieving ISO 14000 certification for industries. Environmental audit is also an important aspect of the environmental impact assessment (EIA) of various types of enterprises. In recent years, industrial waste audit has become more important in developing countries like Viet Nam where large-scale industrialization has been going on. Major environmental problems of the brewing factories in Viet Nam include high water consumption and wastewater discharge. The brewing industry wastewater contains high BOD, COD and SS. The wastewater is discharged into the environment without any treatment or only after primary treatment. Even after primary treatment, the effluent pollutants are much higher than those permitted by Viet Nam National Standards. Mitigation measures are being proposed to minimize water consumption and thereby reducing wastewater quantity. Importance is being given for the creation of employee awareness, adoption of cleaner production processes and providing improved wastewater treatment systems.
