Abstract:

This is the second report of a three-phase effort for the Defense Environmental Leadership Project DELP, which is designed to encourage the development and implementation of industrial process modifications in U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force facilities and thus reduce the amount of hazardous wastes generated by those facilities. Many studies of DOD facilities have recommended industrial process modifications that would reduce wastes generated at the source, rather than concentrating efforts on end-of-pipe treatment facilities. Many of these modifications, some of which feature excellent costbenefit ratios, have been successfully implemented some, however, have not. This project was performed to determine the factors that contributed to success or lack of success of these modifications. Therefore, the methods such as the use of incentives and management practices employed to successfully implement a given modification are important factors in the evaluation of the case studies examined in this report. The case studies also were evaluated on the basis of technical practicality, cost, energy consumption, and program monitoring and auditing.
