Facility Wide Permitting Program

In addition to creating the industrial pollution prevention planning and reporting program, the New Jersey Pollution Prevention Act also established a pilot program on Facility-wide Permitting (FWP). The pilot program was designed to test the concept of incorporating pollution prevention planning data with individual air, water and hazardous waste permit requirements into a single comprehensive document. Eighteen volunteer facilities were accepted into the pilot program.

The single greatest factor that distinguishes the FWP program from all others is the inclusion of pollution prevention materials accounting data into the permitting process. The use of this data led to the following:

  • reductions in hazardous substance use and generation;
  • the identification and accounting of previously unregulated releases;
  • the identification of multimedia transfers of pollutants;
  • the identification of total facility risks and environmental impacts;
  • operational flexibility
