POLLUTION PREVENTION OPPORTUNITY ASSESSMENT - GEOCHEMISTRY LABORATORY AT SANDIA NATIONAL LABORATORIES
Whitford, K. AND G. Wahl. POLLUTION PREVENTION OPPORTUNITY ASSESSMENT - GEOCHEMISTRY LABORATORY AT SANDIA NATIONAL LABORATORIES. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, D.C., EPA/600/R-93/015b, 1992.
These reports summarize pollution prevention opportunity assessments conducted jointly by EPA and DOE at the Geochemistry Laboratory and the Manufacturing and Fabrication Repair Laboratory at the Department of Energy's Sandia National Laboratories facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico, as part of EPA's Waste Reduction Evaluation At Federal Sites (WREAFS) Program. The assessments followed the general format of the Facility Pollution Prevention Guide (EPA/600/R-92/088) and resulted in a number of pollution prevention options at both of the waste generating activities. While the two Laboratories selected generate only small volumes of waste, the significance of this project was in conducting a joint pollution prevention opportunity assessment with DOE and demonstrating the procedure with DOE's waste minimization network (Min Net). Min Net representatives participated in a workshop which concluded this project and was designed to transfer procedure awareness in conducting future process waste assessments (PWA) within DOE.
