Title: Trends Under New Jersey


1
Trends Under New Jerseys Pollution Prevention Act
  • Alan Bookman
  • Office of Pollution Prevention
  • Right to Know
  • NJDEP
  • September 29, 2005
  • 2005 Northeast Environmental Summit
  • Providence, Rhode Island

2
New Jersey Pollution Prevention Act
  • Signed into law August 1991
  • Adopted the concept of Nonproduct Output (NPO) as
    all hazardous substances or wastes generated
    prior to storage, recycling, treatment, control
    or disposal that are not intended for use as a
    product

3
New Jersey Pollution Prevention Act
  • Goal was to reduce hazardous substance NPO
    generation by 50 achieve a significant
    reduction in use over the next five years,
    calculated on the basis of 1987 amounts
  • Covered all facilities required to submit TRI
    Forms
  • SICs 26,28,30,33 and 34 required to prepare P2
    plans by 7/1/94 26-Paper and Allied Products
    28-Chemicals and Allied Products 30-Rubber and
    Miscellaneous Plastic Products 33- Primary Metal
    Products 34 Fabricated Metal Products

4
Planning process is key
  • Identification of processes and sources at the
    facility is the first step in a detailed process
    audit and materials accounting of current
    practices described in the P2 Plan.

5
New Jersey Worker and Community Right to Know Act
  • Signed into law August 1983
  • Required facilities to report detailed materials
    balance information (quantity produced, brought
    on site, consumed, shipped off site as or in
    product, environmental releases)
  • All TRI reporters must also submit the NJ Release
    and Pollution Prevention Report

6
Pollution Prevention
  • Changes in production technologies, raw materials
    or products that result in the reduction of the
    demand for hazardous substances per unit of
    product manufactured and the creation of
    hazardous products or Nonproduct Output (NPO)

7
Definition of NPO (NJ P2 rule)
  • NPO Recycled out of process and reused on site
    Destroyed through treatment on site Destroyed
    through energy recovery on site Stack air
    emissions Fugitive air emissions POTW
    discharges Surface water discharges
    Groundwater discharges On-site land disposal
    Off-site transfers Ending inventory (as NPO) -
    Beginning inventory (as NPO)

Jersey

10
Findings
  • Extrapolating back to 1987 indicated that it is
    very likely that the Statewide Goal of 50
    reduction for NPO was achieved
  • Compliance with NJ P2 rules was about 85

11
Trends Report 1994-2001
  • Bill Lowry
  • Steve Anderson
  • Ken Ratzman
  • Fu Grand Lin
  • Andy Opperman

12
Trends Report 1994-2001
  • Used Production Index from Form R to adjust for
    production
  • PI Quantity of Products from Current Year/
    Quantity of Products from Previous Year
  • Weighted average (by Use) of all production
    indices
  • Used Core original chemicals and facilities

14
On-Site Releases - Stack and Fugitive Air,
Surface Water, Groundwater, On-site Land
Disposal On-Site Management - Recycled and Reused
On Site, Destroyed On Site, Energy Recovery On
Site Off-Site Transfers - Total Waste Transferred
Off Site, includes POTW Discharges
15
NPO for Five SICs
16
Trends 1994 - 2004(Unadjusted for Production)
17
Use Consumed Shipped as or in product NPO

USE
  • Use by petroleum refineries represents 60-78 of
    the total Use
  • If the top ten facilities were excluded from the
    analysis, the total Use decreased by about 10
  • Industries such as refineries and metal
    fabrication account for over 90 of toxics in
    products

20
Findings from 2004 report
  • Overall, NJ facilities achieved substantial
    reductions statewide for NPO
  • Adjusted for production, NPO fell 33
  • Adjusted levels of Use of the hazardous chemicals
    only decreased by 2
  • Trends in Use were driven by a few large
    facilities

21
Cabinet ConfidentialTom Natan, National
Environmental Trust2004
  • For every pound of neurotoxins, carcinogens or
    reproductive or developmental toxins that
    facilities reported as released to air, water or
    land, another 42 pounds of these chemicals were
    found in the same type of products used in the
    home
  • A substantial portion of the chemicals found in
    products were not intended to be part of those
    products

22
2005 Activities
  • NJDEP is conducting research to identify
    successful P2 techniques
  • The NJ Center for Manufacturing Excellence at
    Rutgers has a non-regulatory audit program
    offering suggestions to industry and is
    developing case studies
  • New P2 Rule requires 5 closure on materials
    balance mandatory electronic submission of P2
    Plan Summaries
