NEW JERSEY POLLUTION PREVENTION PROGRAM FINAL REGULATIONS ISSUED TOMORROW

 MORRISTOWN, N.J., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Final regulations for New Jersey's Pollution Prevention Program will be officially released tomorrow, aiming to reduce the use, generation and discharge of hazardous substances in the state by 50 percent within five years.
 "The program is the newest stage in environmental regulation, allowing for a comprehensive, holistic approach to environmental problems, in contrast to the older command and control' approach," said Gail Allyn, an environmental attorney with Pitney, Hardin, Kipp & Szuch in Morristown. "The new program is intended to offer companies flexibility in planning a framework for how to best reduce their use of hazardous material before they pollute."
 The program focuses on reducing hazardous substances by requiring companies to:
 -- evaluate cost savings and other benefits achievable by replacing hazardous materials with non-hazardous raw materials
 -- develop processes so less hazardous material is generated
 -- recycle hazardous material
 -- improve housekeeping to avoid spills
 The state's role is to introduce prevention to companies by requiring pollution prevention planning, so firms will discover prevention opportunities available to them, not by coercing companies into adapting specific scientific technologies. Implementing the plan is voluntary.
 Additionally, the 50 percent reduction goal is a statewide goal. Individual facilities may set different goals, more or less than 50 percent.
