      Flexibility,  innovation,  and partnership are three basic
 elements for successfully advocating pollution prevention.
 Innovative thinking by government is no less important than the
 technological and  management innovations that are being asked of
 industry.   Creating partnerships — among federal,  state,  local,
 and tribal governments; among government,  industry,_and citizens;
 even among nations — has proven essential in identifying  and^
 achieving clearly  stated common prevention goals.   And providing
 flexibility in how such goals are to be achieved enables us to
 tap into the knowledge and creative energies of those closest to
 the source of the  pollution that is to be prevented.

      EPA's 33/50 Program,  a voluntary industry pollution
 prevention initiative,  exemplifies how these basic elements can
 be  combined dynamically to achieve significant results quickly
 and efficiently.   The 33/50 Program derives its name from  its
 overall  goals — an interim goal of a 33% reduction by 1992 and
 50% by 1995 in 17  high-priority toxic chemicals, based upon
 nearly 1.5 billion pounds of releases reported to TRI for  1988.
 Nearly 1,200 companies have enrolled in this innovative program
 to  date,  and I am  pleased to note that the reduction efforts of
 these and  other companies have resulted in the achievement of the
 33/50 Program's 1992  goal a full year ahead of schedule!

     EPA is not alone in pursuing innovative, flexible pollution
prevention initiatives.   Many States, a number of industry
associations,  and  numerous individual companies include 33/50
Program  chemicals  within the scope of their own reduction
programs.-  EPA views  the 33/50 Program as an umbrella under which
the federal government,  states,  industry,  and communities  work in
partnership to achieve common goals.  Any progress in reducing
emissions  of 33/50 Program chemicals reflects the efforts  of all
these partners.

     In order to promote the further development of innovative
pollution prevention initiatives like the 33/50 Program, and to
provide a reference for those seeking information about existing
programs, EPA has assembled this State Programs;  33/50 Program
and Voluntary Pollution Prevention Programs. 1993.  Voluntary
programs such as these, along with more traditional programs of
environmental regulation, will continue to advance pollution
prevention practices for a cleaner, safer environment.

       In 1991, EPA launched The 33/50 Program, an innovation in the Agency's strategy for
reducing chemical releases and promoting pollution prevention. The Program's name stems from
its ambitious goals:  a 50% reduction by 1995 (with 1988 as the baseline) in releases and transfers
of 17 high-priority chemicals, with an interim 33% reduction goal for 1992. These goals are not
mandatory; the 33/50 Program is an experiment to learn if environmental progress can be achieved
through voluntary efforts by industry.

       The progress of the 33/50 Program has been fast-paced and encouraging.  Twelve hundred
companies have voluntarily signed on to the program and have rapidly reduced their releases of the
17 priority chemicals, as documented by the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI).  In fact, the 1992 goal
of a 33% reduction  was reached a year early; 1991 TRI data show an overall reduction of 34% for
    33/50 chemicals.
       This new way of doing business-environmental progress through voluntary action-has
attracted a good deal of attention.  Many states are creating 33/50-type programs of their own,
and several states have had long-standing programs that pre-date 33/50 and are now being used to
set goals and promote voluntary reductions.

       This report, the State Directory:  33/50 and Voluntary Pollution Prevention Programs, 1993,
is a national compilation that showcases voluntary pollution prevention programs.  Most of the
programs are operated at the state level, although we have included local and regional programs as
appropriate. The programs included in the directory are similar to the 33/50 Program in that:

       *      Participation in the program is voluntary.

       *      The program sets numerical goals for achieving reductions for TRI chemicals or
              other chemical wastes.

       Some state programs stem from mandatory authorities such as state pollution prevention
laws, but nevertheless set voluntary reduction goals. We have included these programs in this

       This directory will be updated. Program administrators who would like their programs listed
in a new report or would like to update program descriptions should send information to:

                                Program Description:  The goal of this
                                voluntary pilot project was to reduce incinerable
                                waste going to treatment and disposal facilities by
                                50% by the end of 1992. Fifty-seven of the largest
                                generators in California agreed to take part in this
                                program, and 68% of these companies entered into
                                voluntary agreements with the Department of Toxic
                                Substances Control. The project has  exceeded its
                                goal of 50% reduction in wastes going to treatment
                                and disposal facilities in the allotted time. The
                                Department of Toxic Substances Control continues to
                                     efforts in reducing incinerable waste.

Pollution Prevention  Program

Program Description:  The Pollution Prevention
Program is charged with promoting and advocating
voluntary pollution prevention statewide.  All eligible
state and local agencies, as well as private industries,
may apply for grants in pollution prevention educa-
tion and technical assistance activities. However,
the program's emphasis is mostly on small- to
medium-sized businesses as the  facilities most in
need of assistance. Final determination of the criteria
and goals by which to evaluate the program's
effective-ness is expected to be  ready within the

Pollution Prevention  Partnership


Program Description:  in 1989, the PPP formed
as a voluntary alliance of business, state and federal
government,  and public interest  groups to prevent
pollution at its source.  Member  companies initiated a
"SolvNet" program with a goal to reduce their use of
TCA by an ambitious 70% within two years. In
1991, the results of SolvNet were verified by the
public interest group partner and the actual results
revealed an impressive 90% reduction rate.

The PPP incorporated in 1991.  Presently, the PPP is
in the midst of SolvNet II, a more customized pro-
gram allowing each company to  chose chemicals that
will be reduced by one quarter to two-thirds over a
three- to five-year  period. In addition to their own
pollution prevention activities, the PPP is active in
promoting pollution prevention (P2) to other
businesses in Colorado.

Partners in Pollution  Prevention


Program Description:  Launched in 1991 by
Governor Edgar, PIPP promotes a spirit of coopera-
tion between government and industry-  Companies
develop a continuing pollution prevention plan at their
facilities.  Assessment and implementation are
approached as a team effort involving CEOs, plant
managers, attorneys, accountants, line workers, and
maintenance crews. Facilities submit a "Statement
of Participation" to designate a pollution prevention
facilitator, adopt a P2 policy statement with
management support,  and identify tasks in an
organized plan.  Companies are requested to set their
own goals of reduction, but must submit an annual
progress report describing their pollution prevention
efforts.  Companies are strongly encouraged to
initiate community outreach efforts.

Community-Wide  Reduction

Program Description:  The Kansas Department
of Health and Environment and EPA Region 7, along
with business and industry representatives, have
organized a community-wide reduction program. The
group has committed to reduce emissions by 50% by
1995 and 33% by 1992. Six  companies made the
commitment to reduce the TRI emissions for all
chemicals, including the targeted 17 chemicals of the
33/50 Program.

Project 33/50

Program Description: Representatives from
the Kansas Department of Health and Environment
and EPA formed Project 33/50, a program aimed at
achieving a reduction in Sedgwick County's waste
emissions of more than 90% by 1995.  The group's
initial 1992 reduction goal was 31%, but revised
projections show a 33% reduction in 1992.
Sedgwick County has 23 facilities reporting 33/50
chemicals and 31 reporting for all TRI chemicals.

Tri-State Geographic  Initiative

Program Description:   Spearheaded by the
Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection in
collaboration with nine other agencies, the Initiative
is a collective effort to define, prevent,  and remediate
environmental threats and problems in the Tri-State
area.  On the Appalachian Plateau, the targeted
region is where Kentucky, Ohio, and West  Virginia
meet. The area is known for its industrial base,  sus-
ceptibility for air inversions, and the level of public
concern expressed to local,  state, and federal
agencies. Through a risk assessment process,
coordinators will be able to focus on those sources
which contribute to the highest potential exposure
zones for area residents.  The pollution prevention
project will focus on voluntary commitments and
efforts between the public,  industry, and government
to reduce Toxic Release Inventory chemicals and
criterion air pollutant releases.  No numerical goals
have been established, though a proposed  strategy is
being initiated for voluntary waste reduction that will
be more comprehensive than EPA's 33/50  Program.

                                 pation. The objective of the Environmental Leader-
                                 ship P2 Program is to implement a long-term (five to
                                 seven years) statewide emission prevention/
                                 reduction program that protects Louisiana's
                                 environment beyond regulatory compliance.  Similar
                                 to EPA's 33/50 Program, this effort is designed to
                                 promote, track, and communicate reductions, but
                                 without limitation to the  type of chemicals. The
                                 program encourages industry to achieve early
                                 reductions and other voluntary reductions beyond
                                 what is required by regulation for  1993 through
                                 1998 and beyond.  Companies participating in the
                                 program are encouraged  to set individual goals, with
                                 a state projected reduction goal of 45% by 1997,
                                 using 1992  data as a baseline.  Also, the program
                                 sponsors a new Governor Awards program for
                                 Environmental Excellence, to promote public recog-

                                Toxics Use Reduction  Act
Program Description:  TURA establishes a
combined voluntary/regulatory program that applies
to companies with more than 10 full time employees
in the manufacturing, mining, and certain service SIC
codes. The law establishes a statewide goal to
reduce the quantity of TRI and CERCLA chemicals
wasted during production by 50% by 1997. The
goal is accomplished by requiring these companies to
report annually on the quantities of CERCLA and TRI
chemicals used, "wasted during  production", or
shipped out as product and released as emissions or
transfers offsites, if they use over 10,000 Ibs.
annually.  These companies must also prepare
biennial toxics use reduction  plans designed to
identify ways to reduce the quantity of these
chemicals used or wasted  in  production.  While no
company is required to reduce toxic chemical use or
waste by any amount, it is anticipated that the
planning process will reveal options that will make
economic sense for the company to implement.

                                sets a five-year statewide public policy goal for
                                reducing hazardous substance generation by 50%
                                prior to recycling, treatment, and control, individual
                                facilities set their own voluntary goals based on their

                                 Program Description:  in 1991, Governor
                                 Voinovich sent a letter requesting approximately 53
                                 companies reporting under the TRI to participate in
                                 an Ohio effort similar to U.S. EPA's 33/50 Program.
                                 The aim of the Project is to promote further reduction
                                 for the larger Ohio releasers.  In May, 1992, the
                                 Council of Great Lakes Governors signed the
                                 "Resolution on Reduction of Toxic Substance
                                 Emissions".  The Governors resolved that they would
                                 adopt, as a regional goal, 100% participation by
                                 eligible companies in the 33/50 Program and would
                                 make that goal a part of the Great Lakes Pollution
                                 Prevention Challenge.

Target '98

Program Description:  Target '98 is a voluntary
toxics reduction program aimed at reducing the
State's aggregate release of 15 toxic chemicals by
50% by 1998.  Any company using one or more of
the 15 chemicals may participate. Companies are
divided into two groups for participation.  "Green"
participants are TRI reporters who can document
their reduction progress through Form R reports.
"Gold" participants are non-TRI reporters who
document reduction progress through other means,
such as monitoring data or inventory reductions.
Companies determine their own goals, baseline years,
and methods of documenting decreases.

                                 Toxics Use Reduction  Program


                                 Program Description:  In 1989, Oregon passed
                                 the Toxics Use Reduction and Hazardous Waste
                                 Reduction Act. This law requires TRI reporters and
                                 generators of hazardous waste to develop facility-
                                 wide reduction plans.  Plans must contain a policy
                                 statement of corporate or upper level management
                                 support for reduction efforts, performance goals for
                                 reducing toxics use and hazardous  waste generation,
                                 an evaluation of reduction options for technical and
                                 economic feasibility, and a plan for implementing
                                 selected options. Although the law does not enforce
                                 implementation of reduction options identified in the
                                 plans, an annual progress report is  due. A
                                 recognition program, the Governor's Award, is also a

South Carolina
                                   South Carolina 33/50  Program
Program Description:  The South Carolina
33/50 Program is a voluntary, non-regulatory
pollution prevention program. This program seeks
corporate commitment to voluntarily reduce releases
of 17 target chemicals to 50% of 1988 levels by the
end of 1995.  Companies are free to decide if and
how to participate by committing to meet their own
specified reduction goals and making good-faith,
voluntary efforts to identify and implement cost-
effective prevention measures. To help ensure the
success of this effort, South Carolina research
universities will join with the Department of Health
and Environmental  Control's Center for Waste
Minimi-zation to provide support to South Carolina's
33/50 companies.

Clean Texas 2000
                              Program Description:  Clean Texas 2000 is a
                              statewide pollution prevention program sponsored by
                              Governor Ann Richards and the Texas Natural
                              Resource Conservation Commission. The program's
                              primary goal is to reduce pollution throughout the
                              state by developing partnerships with industry,
                              government and citizens. Specifically, the program
                              seeks to reduce hazardous waste generation and
                              toxic emissions in the state by 50%, to reduce solid
                              waste going to landfills by 50%, and to educate
                              Texans about how they can improve and preserve
                              the environment. Clean Texas 2000 has set a goal
                              to achieve the above reductions by the year 2000.

Hazardous Waste  Reduction Act

Program Description:  in 1990, Washington
passed the HWRA requiring Pollution Prevention
Planning. Facilities reporting under TRI and/or
facilities generating dangerous and/or extremely
hazardous waste under Washington RCRA are
required to prepare five-year plans for voluntarily
reducing the use of hazardous substances and
hazardous waste generation.  Plans must include the
following:  management support and facility
overview, hazardous substance and waste inventory,
identification and selection of reduction opportunities,
financial description of the plan, and provisions for
personnel training and employee involvement. Plans
and annual progress reports citing progress toward
reduction goals are submitted for review. Penalties
may be assessed for non-submittal.  While P2 Plans
are required, implementation is not.  Washington has
a goal of reducing the generation of hazardous waste
by 50% by  1995.

                                      in a thorough analysis of releases statewide.
                                      Narratives provide conceptual P2 ideas, which
                                      stimulate action at other facilities. The 1991
                                      Scorecard reported that 33/50 goals for 1995 had
                                      already been exceeded by industries in the state.
                                      Reductions in the seventeen 33/50 chemicals were a
                                      combined 74%. Total reported TRI chemicals have
