Pollution Prevention Assessments for Marine Maintenance and Commercial Printing Industries

Abstract: 
This paper represents the results of ten pollution prevention/waste minimization assessments performed on marine maintenance and commercial printing industries in the Hampton Roads area of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Local businesses were provided with direct on-site technical consultation on waste reduction, and possible alternatives for the reduction or elimination of solid and hazardous waste, waste water discharges, and air emissions, were evaluated. Financial analyses of identified technology and procedural options were developed in order to prepare comprehensive reports for each business on findings and recommendations. Material usage, waste generation, and waste minimization recommendations are examined for both the marine maintenance and commercial printing industries.
