Pollution Prevention Planning

Pollution prevention (P2) planning is a process to examine current operations and develop a plan to eliminate or reduce pollution at the source.  By developing a P2 plan facilities are able to identify options according to the environmental protection hierarchy (prevention, reuse/recycle, treatment, control, waste disposal), evaluate these options and implement them within a specified time frame.  P2 planning places emphasis on identifying the most cost-effective options, including those where facilities can see a return on investment.
