The new year 2022 is only a few weeks away and it's time to start thinking about environmental goals for the coming year. For the individuals that must manage this responsibility, remember the goals you establish should have common sense objectives that are achievable and measurable. The question of where the ideas come from is pretty simple as well - just think about your risky activities, opportunities to improve, legal issues, and objectives that can be either on-going or time-bound.
Material handling and storage, equipment maintenance and cleaning, and other activities at industrial facilities are often exposed to the weather. Runoff from rainfall or snowmelt that comes in contact with these activities can pick up pollutants, and transport them directly to a nearby river, lake, or coastal water or indirectly via a storm sewer and degrade water quality.

A good pretreatment program is one that protects the city’s wastewater collection system and wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) from the wide array of pollutants that can be discharged in industrial process wastewaters.
UT CIS has experienced teams who apply lean analyses to manufacturing operations and identify potential environmental cost-saving opportunities: reduction in use of toxic and/or hazardous materials, reduction in raw materials, reduction in water use, energy conservation, and reduction of solid and hazardous waste generation. We will provide you with the data and assistance to help you complete the Annual Reporting of Hazardous Waste Activities.
