Pollution Prevention Feasibility Analyses

Part of the Environmental Engineering book series (ESE)


The level of required analysis depends on the complexity of the considered pollution prevention project. A simple, low-capital cost improvement, such as preventive maintenance, would not need much analysis to determine whether it is technically, environmentally and economically feasible. On the other hand, input material substitution could affect a product specification, while a major modification in process equipment could require large capital expenditures. Such changes could also alter process waste quantities and compositions, thus requiring more systematic evaluation (USEPA, 1992a).
