Pollution Prevention (P2): Table of Contents

Welcome to the Pollution Prevention (P2) Topic Hub™, a guide to basic information with links to additional on-line resources.

Background and Overview - This section describes and defines pollution prevention (P2), with examples from statutes and synonyms to related terms. The preferred strategy for handling waste, known as the waste management hierarchy, is explained.

Operations - This section contains a description of typical sources of waste and an overview of common approaches to devising P2options. It contains links to generic P2 checklists that can help identify P2 project options.

Reasons for Change - There's more to P2 than protecting the environment. Here you will find a list of incentives and justifications for implementing pollution prevention and source reduction. These apply to the waste and pollution generated in typical operations, and are not specific to one industry.

P2 Opportunities - The greatest opportunities lie with a considered approach to identifying source reduction opportunities and moving to implementation. Here you will find several P2 planning and P2 program building guides. A general step-by-step process for getting buy-in and implementing P2 programs is defined in the narrative, as well as links to more detailed resources that will help identify and implement and monitor specific P2 alternatives.

Where To Go for P2 Help - This hub serves as an introduction to P2. The world has countless numbers of P2 specialists who work as technical assistance providers. A few resources are listed here to help you find the resources and P2 specialists most able to help you find P2 opportunities. It also contains lists of newsletters, listserves, clearinghouses, and other searchable resources to help find specific information.

Complete List of Links - Lists all resources cataloged in this hub. If you know of resources relating to this topic, please let us know. We will review all suggestions and include them in the hub if they provide non-biased information not currently covered.
