Pollution Prevention Assessment

The Motivation

Industrial engineer writing on notepad in factoryTo maintain competitiveness, manufacturers continually seek more efficient and sustainable practices. A P2 assessment can save businesses both resources and money.  If your business has environmental goals, or challenges with waste, water, energy, or toxics use and exposure, PPRC can help.

The Program

After collecting baseline metrics, and learning about priority issues at a business, PPRC will conduct a facility site visit.  With the help of your staff, we create a Process Map to facilitate a holistic assessment of input and output flows. Based on the visit and our analysis, we will provide a number of P2 recommendations, including low-cost/no-cost opportunities and a cost-benefit analysis. PPRC is also available for follow-on assistance to help design and implement solutions that will achieve pollution reduction goals.

P2 Assessments can help businesses:

  • Reduce use of and exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Eliminate wastes, material inefficiency, and associated waste management costs
  • Improve water efficiency
  • Improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emission
  • Address and/or help prevent stormwater pollution
