The Pollution Prevention Act (PPA) authorizes various mechanisms.

The new substances program includes identification. Marc J. Rogoff PhD, in Solid Waste Recycling and Processing (Second Edition), Waste Reduction and Reuse. The following section provides a brief discussion on source reduction and reuse, including examples of how communities are encouraging residents to rethink what waste is and to aim toward the concept of “zero waste.” Source reduction and reuse involves reeducating municipal staff.

CERCLA Priority List of Hazardous Substances. The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) section (i), as amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA), requires ATSDR and the EPA to prepare a list, in order of priority, of substances that are most commonly found at facilities on the National Priorities List (NPL) and which.

Blackland Prairie soils once supported a tallgrass prairie dominated by tall-growing grasses such as big bluestem, little bluestem, indiangrass, and switchgrass. Because of the fertile soils, much of the original prairie has been plowed to produce food and forage crops.

Prairie grasses were also shown to decrease movement of pesticides both through the soil column and into biota, thus serving as a phytostabilization agent. Nearly 20% of the metolachlor in unvegetated columns leached out of the bottom of the column after application of an artificial "rain event", while only 5% leached out of vegetated columns.

This book seeks to provide the fundamentals in each major area, such as air pollution, water pollution, hazardous waste and toxic pollutant regulation, protection of endangered species, and the National Environmental Policy Act, without overloading the professor and student with exhaustive and unnecessary detail.
