Pollution Prevention Case Studies

The Office of Pollution Prevention has compiled Pollution Prevention Case Studies to encourage companies and municipalities to adopt pollution prevention practices. These case studies show real world examples and identify technologies and techniques that were successful. These examples showcase the effectiveness of pollution prevention projects by quantifying pollution reduction, cost savings and other benefits. The highlighted success stories have improved environmental performance by going above and beyond the industry standard.
