Abstract--The Pacific Northwest Laboratory")i has developed a tool to assist in
incorporating pollution prevention opportunities into the design of federal facilities.
The Pollution Prevention Environmental Design Guide for Engineers (P2-EDGE) was
developed for the U.S. Department of Energy (prior to its release this summer it had
been referred to as the P2 electronic design guideline. P2-EDGE contains a
database of 267 opportunities intended to help a decisionmaker (designer, engineer,
or project manager) evaluate the applicability and potential benefits of implementing
pollution prevention in a particular project. The P2-EDGE database was derived
from both DOE and non-DOE sources including pollution prevention literature, indus-
trial design personnel, and federal, 'state, and DOE sources. A key feature of the
tool is the integration of photos, illustrations, and documentation to provide easy
access to technical information on specific waste minimization opportunities in
Historically, pollution prevention activities have focused on existing
process waste streams. However, it is estimated that 70% of the cost over
the life of a product is fixed by design (i.e., before the product is constructed
or used) (0. In recognition of this pollution prevention opportunity, the U.S.
Department of Energy (DOE), Waste Minimization Division (EM-334), is
