Purpose

The Pollution Prevention Act (PPA) of 1990 (§§6601-6610, 42 USC §§13101-13113 [Supp. II 1990]) is an holistic approach to environmental protection which seeks to reduce or eliminate pollutants before they are generated. This prevention is done by altering products, procedures, or raw materials in the manufacturing process. The EPA defines pollution prevention as "the use of materials, processes or practices that reduce or eliminate the creation of pollutants or wastes at the source. [It] includes practices that reduce the use of hazardous materials, energy, water or other resources, and practices that protect natural resources through conservation and more efficient use" (U.S. EPA. 1990).
