The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in cooperation with the Simpson Tacoma Kraft Mill(Simpson) and the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) conducted a study of the opportunities for pollution prevention at Simpson's Tacoma Mill. Feasible process alternatives were identified and evaluated for implementation by reviewing major process areas and equipment at the Mill using on-site observations, interviewing plant personnel, and evaluating emission and discharge estimates for the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) data. Several recommendations were put forward for Simpson to develop and implement an ongoing pollution prevention program and for specific process modifications to attain pollution prevention benefits. Based upon these recommendations, Simpson developed an implementation plan which contains a commitment to make short-term and long-term process modifications. EPA will use this plan for the pulp and paper industry. Ecology and Simpson will use the plan as a partial fulfillment of the State's requirement for a pollution prevention plan under Ecology's hazardous waste law. This is a good example of a public/private cooperative venture that has benefits to a company, the government and the environment.
