Abstract : Defense Energy Program Policy Memorandum 91-2, Executive Orders 12759 and 12902, and the Clean Air Act Amendments all impact Department of Defense (DOD) facility operations. Because most of the technologies used by DOD industrial activities are over 40 years old, such energy and environmental directives often exceed facilities' performance capabilities. Cost-effective compliance with these directives requires a thorough evaluation of the activities and their potential for improvements. This study is part of the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program, which seeks to develop tools to help DOD industrial operators make informed decisions whether to change/modify processes, or to adopt new technologies to achieve energy and environmental goals. Initial efforts of this project reviewed DOD industrial operations and developed a Level-I process energy and pollution reduction (PEPR) analysis tool to help installations prepare prioritized implementation plans to meet required energy and environmental goals. A PEPR workshop and an energy/emission review at Pine Bluff Arsenal and a plating process study at Watervliet Arsenal were also conducted. The study concluded that, by aggressively pursuing the PEPR technique, as much as a 70 percent process energy reduction is possible, while collateral economic benefits often surpass the energy savings. jg p5
