Agricultural Best Management Practices (BMPs)
Abstract: Farming puts a real strain on our environment in all sorts of ways. By using the land to sustain us, we are slowly depleting it of its nutrients. While at the same time, cattle and other barnyard animals can also be detrimental to land used for farming, as well as nearby streams. In order to help landowners protect their farmlands many county conservation district offices around the state are helping farmers implement Best Management Practices, or BMPs. These programs provide common sense, valuable solutions to the every day problems of farming. Whether it's installing roof top gutter systems to keep rainwater from overwhelming barnyards and the interiors of barns themselves, or installing fencing systems to keep cattle out of streams, these programs are in place and are working.

Antonio Cusano Environmental Education Center
Abstract: The ultimate hope of the Cusano Environmental Education center at the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinnicum is to help the public gain a better understanding of the impacts humans have on our environment. To that, the architectural design team of the center has used positive, forward thinking design concepts to create a center that will invite the public to learn more about the wetlands and wildlife around them. In designing the center, the team uses a simple philosophy "Green design = Good design." It is their hope that this philosophy will someday become the norm rather than the exception to building design in this country. To that, they utilized recycled newspaper for the insulation within the walls, recycled truck tires from Lancaster on the floors, wood from a certified well-managed forest in western PA, and a 'Marsh Machine' to treat the water.

EPA's Green Lights Program: Hospital Case Study Award
Abstract: David Cole, Lighting Energy Specialist, University of Texas, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. Energy to run commercial and industrial buildings in the US costs about $71 billion per year. The purpose of the Green Lights program is to identify and work with organizations to cut the cost and pollution generated by running those buildings by 50%. M.D. Anderson wanted to reduce their $13 million annual utility costs. As a cancer institute, they wanted to reduce pollution wherever possible. They started with changing the lighting fixtures and installing occupancy sensors. By doing this, their annual electric bill has been reduced by over $500,000 annually. They also changed the exit signs to LED fixtures and switched outdoor lighting from mercury vapor to more efficient high pressure sodium fixtures.

Hospital Case Study: Carle Foundation Hospital on Cost Benefits and Waste Reduction Results Part 1
Abstract: Sue Cook, R.N. and John Strauss, Manager of Engineering Services, Carle Foundation Hospital. Carle Foundation Hospital generated about 6,500 lbs. of waste daily. In 1994, 4,400 lbs. of that was deemed red bag waste that was incinerated. The pending regulations on emissions from medical waste incinerators threatened to financially damage the hospital. In an effort to avoid this, they sought to reduce incinerated waste at the source. The first step was to explore switching to reusables. However, additional charges and staff would be required to launder these items. The Orex degradable technology was introduced to them. This allowed their Orex products to be dissolved and safely discharged into the sewer. Permission had to be obtained from local authorities. With the new system, a new strict segregation of waste process had to be put in place.

Hospital Laboratories: Xylene Fractional Distillation Case Study
Abstract: Mike Vandeveer, Director of Safety Columbia/HCA. Products such as Xylene have substitutes, but they may not be acceptable. In this case, the waste stream itself must be handled. Xylene can be recycled. By purchasing a distillation unit, the Xylene does not need to be taken offsite to be treated. Using a distillation unit has saved Centennial Medical Center money and greatly reduced their hazardous waste stream. Additionally, it has reduced liability costs, lowered insurance costs, proven better for the community and reduced exposure to hazardous waste.

Management of the Environment of Care Standard
Abstract: Susan McLaughlin, Associate Director Department of Standards, Joint Commission on Accreditation for Healthcare Organizations. The Joint Commission Standards address an organization's level of performance in key functional areas. They address issues that must be considered, but not how they are to be accomplished. The management of environment of care standards is a cycle consisting of designing, teaching, implementation, evaluation and change. Documented management plans should include a written plan, policies and procedures, performance standards with written criteria, and goals and objectives. Effective management will include reduction and control of hazards, prevention of injuries and accidents, and maintenance of safe conditions for all in the facility. It is important to identify, evaluate and inventory hazardous materials. A plan should be developed to report and investigate spills and other incidents. The plan must be reviewed annually.

New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) and Emission Guidelines (EG) for Medical Waste Incinerators
Abstract: Rick Copland, Engineer US Environmental Protection Agency. This video examines medical waste incinerator regulations effective as of July of 1997. These regulations seek to limit air pollutants such as products of incomplete combustion, acid gases, and metals. The two highest priority eliminations are dioxin and mercury. There are separate regulatory requirements on new and existing incinerators, type and size. New units that are medium or large need a dry & wet scrubber, whereas small new units need only the wet scrubber. Medium or large existing units need either a dry or wet scrubber, and small existing units need to at least monitor for good combustion. The regulations also include regular stack testing to show compliance.

Pennsylvania Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program
Abstract: USDA's Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) and the State of Pennsylvania have agreed on a plan to implement a Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) to improve the water quality of the Chesapeake Bay. This voluntary program encourages farmers to enroll in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) in contracts of 10 to 15 years duration to remove lands from agricultural production.

Red Bag Waste Reduction Through Top Management Support
Abstract: Mike Vandeveer, Director of Safety Columbia/HCA. Centennial Medical Center took the opportunity to examine what was going into their red bag waste after receiving reports of items such as pizza boxes found their way into the red bag waste stream. They studied volume, weight, the actual articles in the waste stream, and what choices were being made. The amount of biohazardous waste generated varies according to the surgical procedure. This was taken into account during their study. The results of the study showed that about 80% of items found in the red bag waste stream did not belong there. After the study was completed, a workshop was setup with the employees to change their disposal habits. The study was repeated showing dramatic results within two weeks.

Runoff & Field Loss
Abstract: Valuable soil is lost from our farms each year, depleting the earth of valuable nutrients and organic matter essential for plant growth, and affecting crop yield potentials. The management practices used on farms can either hinder or enhance soil retention. Not only are we losing our valuable soil, but local streams are affected as well. Every time a stream turns brown, we’re losing more valuable soil. Not only that, but the nutrients that run from our fields enter waterways and produce high concentrations of algae blooms from the nutrients and fertilizers used on the fields. These algae blooms rob the water of oxygen, essential for aquatic life. This production gives an inside look at how soil erodes, the different factors that are involved, the science behind it, and the best management practices that can be utilized to decrease the amount of soil lost through the agricultural process.

Zero Waste - Part One
Abstract: Professor Paul Connett talks about the unnecessary pollution caused by incineration and landfill. Much of this can be avoided by using a “zero waste” strategy. A great deal of waste can be recycled or composted. Any surplus waste, known as residuals, can be treated and stabilized so that toxic metals do not leach into the water supply. He says manufacturers must be made more responsible for the toxic residual wastes they produce. Communities can also take on a greater role in dealing with the rubbish they consume. Finally, he points out the business case for zero waste, noting that it can cut costs and improve profitability. Xerox is a case in point. Write to Paul at paul@fluoridealert.org to request any of his own videos on zero waste.
