The paper's purpose is to describe the current pollution prevention research program assigned to the Risk Reduction Engineering Laboratory which incorporated multi-media direction in providing practical solutions to the complex problems of waste management. The pollution prevention research program follows the six fundamental goals identified in the Pollution Prevention Research Plan: Report to Congress.
