Abstract : The purpose of PERSEUS was to develop and evaluate investment strategies to assist decision makers in prioritizing pollution abatement and prevention projects for US Army facilities and activities. The study applied the Pollution Abatement and Prevention Analysis (PAPA) methodology and a limited set of data to demonstrate three cases of development and evaluation of pollution prevention (P2) investment strategies. Case 1 developed a P2 investment strategy using only pollution prevention opportunities (PPO). Case 2 developed an integrated P2 investment strategy, combining both PPO and energy conservation opportunity (ECO) data. Case 3 related P2 investment strategy results to installation readiness, using C-ratings to characterize the contribution of the strategy toward achievement of Army environmental goals. Additional cases were planned using a more complete data set suitable to decision support but were deferred to such time when the data becomes available.
