By Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. The Environmental Design Guide for Engineers (EDGE) is a software tool designed to help engineers and designers incorporate pollution prevention strategies into the design of new products, processes, and facilities to reduce life cycle costs and increase materials and energy efficiency. EDGE is a project-related software tool that provides more than 200 opportunities to incorporate pollution prevention into projects during design. Each opportunity is supported by examples, pictures, and references to help you evaluate the applicability and potential benefits to your project. Built-in filters narrow the focus to only the opportunities that apply, based on project size and design stage.
Environmental Knowledge and Assessment Tool (EKAT)
By CABEM Technologies. The Environmental Knowledge and Assessment Tool (EKAT) is a software tool used to identify, research, and evaluate environmental and pollution prevention options for products and systems. EKAT is designed and built by the team of M2 Technologies, Kansas State University, and CABEM Technologies as members of the National Environmental Evaluation and Remediation Consortium (NEER). EKAT is a suite of integrated modules designed to mitigate safety and environmental risks associated with material, product and system use. EKAT’s capabilities include: an environmental screening tool for regulatory requirements and potential issues of concern; estimating emissions from equipment or processes; an indoor air chemical concentration module; National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) evaluations; and Programmatic Environment, Safety, and Occupational Health Evaluation (PESHE) reports required by the Department of Defense.
Green Product Selector
By IHS Dolphin Software, Inc. The Green Product Selector (GPS) analyzes maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) chemical products by indexing their ingredients. This tool provides insight into product spend, hazards and proliferation, giving companies a comprehensive overview for increased procurement performance. Once a company’s chemical inventory information has been entered into the Green Product Selector, products are categorized by general and specific use. Product and ingredient information are used to rank items by price-per-unit, human hazard and environmental hazard points. Points are assigned based on the ingredients on federal and international hazardous chemical lists.
