TOXICS IN THE ENVIRONMENT

PBT STRATEGY                          .
EPA's cross-program Persistent, Bioaccumulative, and Toxic  (PBT)
Pollutants Program is working to further reduce risks to human
health and the environment from existing and future exposure to
priority PBT pollutants.  While the Program'emphasizes prevention
as a means to stop the transfer of PBT pollutants across  ,
environmental media,, it is designed to utilize all of the
Agency's tools.

HOSPITALS FOR A HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT

Hospitals for a Healthy Environment  (H2E) is an effort led by the
American Hospital Association and the U.S. EPA to advance
pollution prevention efforts in our nation's hospitals.  Through
activities such as the development of best•practices, model plans
for total waste management, resource directories, and case
studies, the project hopes to provide hospitals and healthcare  ,
systems with enhanced tools for minimizing the volumes of waste
generated and the production of persistent,  bioaccumulative and
toxic pollutants.
