—This research consists in to present the application
of the Industrial Solid Waste Disposal Index (ISWDI), that is
formed by 7 sub-indexes covering 20 indicators, involving the
principles of non-generation, minimization, reuse, recycling,
treatment, storage and final disposal. The benchmark that
guided the evaluations of ISWDI was obtained from
environmental reports, auditable documents and technical
visits in the automotive industry textile, cement, power, dairy
products and steel industries. The ISWDI developed was
simulated from real data and has demonstrated its applicability
in the Brazilian reality. Thus, this paper intends to expand the
use of the index for Latin America. So, we intend to prove its
efficiency in management assessment and to support decision
making managers. This analysis was done by comparing the
results obtained by the simulation of a Brazilian and a Chilean
company, both from the pulp and paper industry. The results
proved the efficiency of the model and the compatibility of the
expected evaluations. Thus, the ISWDI constitutes a
management tool applicable to the reality of Latin America.
