Abstract:

Since 1985, the U.S. Army has funded approximately 75 installations and activities to conduct various projects related to hazardous waste minimization HAZMIN. This report describes the findings of a study to follow up on over 100 projects funded between 1988 and 1991 and address their fate and effectiveness in terms of waste reduction and cost savings. These projects were categorized by project type e.g., equipment purchase and installation, test and evaluation, etc. and by targeted waste e.g., solvents, metals, reactive, etc.. In general, many of the HAZMIN projects were found to have resulted in apparent cost savings and waste reduction as well as less tangible benefits such as increased awareness of and involvement in HAZMIN initiatives. In addition to an evaluation of successful HAZMIN projects, impediments to the success of HAZMIN projects were identified. MM
