EPA Updates Pollution Prevention Resource Center

Sept. 25, 2023
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has released an updated online P2 Hub Resources Center to help businesses with pollution prevention.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released an updated online P2 Hub Resources Center to help businesses with pollution prevention (P2), according to a press release.

The new website provides resources for P2 for any of the potential or actual pollution-generating activities that can sometimes be performed in collision repair shops.

Benefits of implementing P2 practices can include reducing financial costs, such as those from waste management and cleanup, as well as environmental costs for things such as health problems or environmental damage.

Some P2 approaches can include increasing efficiency in energy and water use, using safer cleaning products, transitioning to less environmentally harmful substances, or reusing materials.

The P2 Hub Resources Center can help businesses learn how they can best implement P2 practices through services including the P2 Hub Helpline, a P2 Resources Search, P2 Technical Assistance Providers, P2 Tools & Calculators, and more.

All of these can be accessed on the P2 Hub Resources Center website, which is updated regularly with new information and features.
