Presentation Transcript

  1. Pollution Prevention Debby Valin FDEP - Central District

  2. Agenda • What is P2 • Why do P2 • How to P2 • Means to P2 • Continuing with P2 • P2 in Buildings • P2 in Offices • P2 in Operations and Processes • Industry P2 Practices

  3. What is P2 - Hierarchy Pollution Reduce Reuse Recycle Where would Treatment fit in? Dispose Prevention

  4. Reduces Costs Enhances Worker Safety Improves Regulatory Status Strengthens Public Image Lessens Liability Reduces Waste Preserves Landfill Space Good for Economics Creates Jobs Creates New Demand Saves Raw Materials Saves Water and Energy Reduces Water and Air Pollution Protects Wildlife Why do P2 - Benefits

  5. How to P2 - Strategies Recycle - Byproducts Buy recycled and recyclable items Send items back to manufacturer Donate or sell for use offsite Send for offsite reprocessing Closing-the-Loop Resources Wastes • Reduce - consumption, waste and pollution • Conserve energy • Use less water • Use less or more durable/safer products • Dispose of less waste • Reuse - items, supplies, materials and chemicals • Buy reusable • Use again for same or other uses

  6. Means to P2 - Methods • Design • Process • Materials Substitution • Materials Reuse • Resource Efficiency • Improved Work Practices

  7. Continuing with P2 - Goals • Conserve Natural Resources • Water • Energy • Raw Materials • Reduce Material Losses • Emissions • Wastewater • Energy • Wastes • Operational Improvements • Efficiency • Economics

  8. Buildings – P2 • Building envelope improvements • Preventive maintenance • HVAC system improvements • Chillers, cooling towers, boilers • Automated EMS • Heat exchangers • Lighting Upgrades • Fluorescent lamps • HID Lamps • MH lamps • HPS lamps • Solar energy - Panels • Occupancy sensors • Water measures • Low-flow fixtures • “Gray” water reuse • Wastewater effluent irrigation • Solar or on-demand heating • Green cleaning • Cleaners • Systems • Native and xeriscape planting • Integrated pest management

  9. Offices – P2 • Energy Star equivalent equipment • Paper with post–consumer recycled content • Returnable/recyclable packing • Recycling • Paper - all • Cardboard • Glass and plastic containers • Aluminum cans • Steel cans • Toner cartridges • Electronics • Rechargeable batteries • Metals

  10. Operations and Processes – P2 • Material Substitution • Process Improvements • Equipment Changes • Housekeeping • Preventative Maintenance • Inventory Management • Training

  11. P2 Practices in Industry
