Celebrating 25 Years of P2! The Pollution Prevention Act (P2 Act) was signed into law by President George H. W. Bush in 1990. It came as a follow-up to a focus on waste reduction. Many professionals worked on reducing the amount of waste from a process by removing the water from it, or separating it into components that could be properly disposed. People realized that much more progress could be made by evaluating the process, the materials being used, the equipment, and training of personnel. With implementation of the P2 Act, it became the goal to make changes so that the waste was not created at all – or at least so that less waste was created. Pollution prevention is different than recycling or zero waste, because it’s not about diversion but is about prevention. The P2 act established the “waste management hierarchy” of preventing waste before it is generated, rather than focusing on how to reduce the quantity of waste.
