What Is Pollution Prevention?
Pollution prevention (P2) is any practice that reduces or eliminates pollution at the source. Pollution is prevented through increased efficiency in
the use of raw materials, energy, water and other resources; and through
reducing or eliminating the use of hazardous substances in the production
process. Activities for implementing P2 include:
*Equipment or technology modification;
*Process modifications;
*Reformulation or redesign of products;
*Substitution of raw materials;
*Improvements in housekeeping, maintenance, training or inventory control.
A process for comparing alternatives when considering alternative raw
materials is detailed in this publication.
