EPA’s Work Related to P2 and the Great Lakes

Great Lakes Regional Pollution Prevention Round Table Summer Conference

August 2005


Pollution prevention act of 1990

Pollution Prevention Act of 1990

  • The Pollution Prevention Act focused industry, government, and public attention on reducing the amount of pollution through cost-effective changes in production, operation, and raw materials use.


Making p2 a reality in region 2

Making P2 a reality in Region 2

  • Regional Strategic Plan 2004-2008

    The plan highlights the Region’s opportunity to commit to activities, goals, and specific targets that will foster and support activities from all programs, to achieve, through source reduction and pollution prevention, overall environmental strategic targets.

Making P2 a reality in Region 2-continued

  • Regional offices around the country are being tasked to report pounds of pollution reduced, BTUs of energy conserved, gallons of water conserved, and dollars saved through P2 efforts that are undertaken. These are outcomes that can be achieved by a broad number of programs employing a variety of strategies both regulatory and non-regulatory.


Region 2 pollution prevention council

Region 2 Pollution Prevention Council

The mission of the council is:

  • increase coordination and collaboration among Region 2 programs and offices to meet shared pollution prevention objectives;

  • incorporate P2 principles into our Region’s program implementation strategies as the first choice in environmental protection;

  • and effectively gather and bring uniformity to the way Region 2 reports pollution prevention results.

Region 2 Pollution Prevention Council-continued

  • R2P2 Council is an interdivisional body-OPM,DECA,DESA,DEPP. This promotes the development of strategies to address problems that are hard for one group to solve alone (e.g., priority targeting effort)


Expanding role in air water rcra programs

Expanding Role in Air, Water & RCRA Programs

  • RCC - beneficial use, priority chemicals, 35% MSW recycling, electronics management

  • SIPs, mobile sources, air toxics

  • Water geographic initiatives


Grant programs

Grant Programs

  • Region 2 supports work being conducted in academia, non-profit organizations, and state agencies, in a variety of programs aimed at pollution prevention and sustainability. RFPs this year attracted nearly 100 applicants requesting a cumulative total of over $5 million dollars


Voluntary programs

Voluntary Programs

  • EPA's Offices and Regions conduct a variety of programs that reach out to business, industry, trade associations, communities, universities, and state and local governments and others. Their success lies in solving environmental problems not generally addressed by laws and regulations,


Epa partnership programs results for 2000

EPA Partnership Programs Results for 2000

The results add up:

  • On an annual basis, the benefits of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 37 million metric tons of carbon equivalent are comparable to removing more than 25 million cars from the road in one year.

  • The 603 million gallons water saved is enough to fill over 12 million bathtubs.

  • The 769 trillion BTUS of energy saved is enough to supply the annual energy needs of approximately 6.5 million U.S. households.

Great lakes regional collaboration glrc

Great Lakes Regional Collaboration (GLRC)

GLRC was established on May 18, 2004, through Executive Order 13340. The GLRC has 3 goals:

  • develop a Great Lakes Restoration and Protection Strategy;

  • serve as a forum for addressing near-term issues that relate to protection and restoration; and

  • create an oversight forum to coordinate and enhance implementation of the Strategy.
