HSS Green Chemical Management and DOE O 450.1A Where We Are . . . Where We Want to Be Office of Health, Safety and Security Jane Powers Office of Environmental Policy and Assistance, HS-22 Joint EFCOG/DOE Chemical Safety and Lifecycle Management Workshop March 10-12, 2009

Slide 2

HSS Office of Health, Safety and Security Background EO 13423, Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy and Transportation Management, guided Federal organizations to take out or lessen the amount of harmful chemicals, including ozone-exhausting substances, obtained, utilized, or arranged. DOE Order 450.1A, Environmental Protection Program and its CRD reconsidered to execute EO prerequisites all inclusive. EO Implementing Instructions guided organizations to add to an arrangement for distinguishing and lessening the discharge and utilization of harmful chemicals. DOE/EFCOG Chemical Safety Topical Committee (CSTC) framed a Task Team to assess how the Department ought to agree to the EO poisonous substance decrease procurements. Proposals of the CSTC shaped the premise of DOE’s lethal synthetic lessening arrangement, and related-updates to DOE O 450.1A.

Slide 3

HSS Office of Health, Safety and Security Background CSTC’s key proposal: Use a site-particular, EMS-based approach No corporate (one-size-fits-all) decrease focuses on, no constraining arrangements of chemicals Sites to diminish/take out dangerous chemicals through their Environmental Management Systems (EMS): Determine site-particular chemicals, lessening objectives, and activities - considering site qualities Establish objectives and activities as destinations and quantifiable targets, individually, in EMS Report measured execution every year through the on-line Pollution Prevention Tracking and Reporting System

Slide 4

HSS Office of Health, Safety and Security Other CSTC Recommendations Update DOE O 450.1 to reflect EO prerequisites Modify and add reporting components to reflect harmful concoction decrease necessities to DOE’s Pollution Prevention Tracking and Reporting System (PPTRS) Use PPTRS to screen and survey execution in meeting site EMS destinations and targets and accomplishing DOE’s maintainable natural stewardship objectives (O 450.1A) Develop, apply, and offer apparatuses to make utilizing non-or less-lethal options more attainable Cover full life-cycle of substance administration

Slide 5

HSS Office of Health, Safety and Security Progress in Meeting CSTC Recommendations DOE O 450.1A contains economical ecological stewardship objectives, including a green compound administration objective to actualize EO poisonous synthetic lessening procurements DOE O 450.1A obliges reporting of harmful concoction decrease progress through PPTRS now incorporates reporting components to track poisonous synthetic diminishment progress DOE Guide 450.1A-alpha (draft) incorporates supportable practices and “example” EMS goals and focuses to assist upgrade with greening concoction administration
