P2 software announcment from the US EPA



The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Purdue University have designed a pollution prevention software program available free to the public. This program gives an overview of pollution prevention concepts and describes in detail P2 opportunities in the industry, agriculture, energy, government, and consumer sectors. It features case studies and also provides P2 information resources. Please see the announcement below for more information and how to obtain this and other software programs available.

Pollution Prevention & Special Initiatives



The Pollution Prevention Act of 1990 established source reduction as the preferred approach to environmental protection. P2 can save money, reduce liability, and improve efficiency, worker safety, and competitiveness. This program outlines the relevant environmental legislation and addresses P2 in industry, agriculture, energy, government, and consumer sectors. Examples include more efficient manufacturing processes, alternative products and procedures that generate less or more benign end products, and ways to reduce the amount of raw materials used.

These software programs run on an IBM-compatible computer with a hard drive and a high density (HD or 2HD) diskette drive. An ideal system for running all the software programs is a 486 PC with a VGA monitor and a mouse, but many of the programs will run on older or less powerful equipment as well. All programs are public domain software (shareware) and may be copied and given (not sold) to other interested users. Neither USEPA nor Purdue University accept liability for any event resulting from the use or misuse of these programs. Purdue University etains copyright on all software products. USEPA Region 5 takes no responsibility for bugs, defects or modifications in second-generation copies.


1.On CD-ROM or diskette from Purdue University.

This is the ONLY way to obtain a registered copy of a program. Programs are available on 3?" high density diskettes. Prices include handling, duplication and postage, as well as shareware registration entitling the user to updates and product support. Due to the large response to Purdue's first CD-ROM in 1994, a second CD-ROM has been issued containing over 50 programs, including our new releases, modeling and calculator software, and an expanded version of the Electronic Wetland Herbarium. The CD sells for $25 and is only available from Purdue. Call (317) 494-1173 or write for more information to:
