Outreach to Industries That Use Priority Chemicals

Organization(s) New Jersey Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description The NJ DEP Office of Pollution Prevention and Right to Know is working with the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services and Rutgers University Center for Advanced Energy Systems (CAES) to develop a proposal for a 2007 Pollution Prevention grant.

The project will attempt to identify and prioritize, based on toxicity data available in EPA's High Production Volume Information System (HPVIS) and New Jersey's air toxics and chemical use and inventory databases, high production volume chemicals being used at facilities in New Jersey. Once these chemicals are prioritized, 5-10 facilities will be selected for pollution prevention audits to be conducted by CAES. The goal of these audits will be to assist/educate these facilities on the reduction or elimination of the most toxic high production volume hazardous chemicals and their subsequent waste. Additionally, multi-media sustainable business practice guidelines will be developed based on the audits that can be used by other facilities.
