Abstract : This report describes the Zero Discharge Project. The project developed computer software that would assist with eliminating hazardous waste discharges from the Air Force Air Logistics Centers (ALCs). The software, called Zero-Discharge Plan, was based on a manually prepared plan. Phase 1 of the project, proof of concept, used Toolbook(registered), Runtime Version 1.5 from Assymetrix Corporation to create an easy-to-use software package that could summarize ALC hazardous waste discharge data and link it with information from projects aimed at reducing those wastes. The Phase 2 effort applied the ideas of the Phase 1 work using Microsoft Corporation's Foxpro 2.5 for Windows(TM), a software development kit with database capabilities. This report summarizes the accomplishments of Phase II and describes the Phase 2 software, data-gathering, and data reduction efforts and methods.
