TurboPlan Opportunities and Environmental Effects
This page describes opportunities at your facility that target hazardous substances, hazardous waste, or increase recycling or treatment.
Adding a New Opportunity
An opportunity is an idea or plan to evaluate acceptable alternatives for hazardous substances used, to reduce hazardous substances used, and/or to reduce wastes generated. Ecology staff can suggest many opportunities.
Yearly observations describe the results, challenges, and status of the opportunity during each marked year. You can edit the current and previous years’ observations by clicking [Edit].
An environmental effect tracks how an opportunity affects a business or the environment. It should measure what actually happened the previous year. You may track usage as well as reductions. Example: Acetone Used (lbs). Estimates are acceptable.
Adding a New Environmental Effect
To add a new Environmental Effect, click [Add]. If you do not find an appropriate environmental effect in the drop down list, you may create a new one. You will need to name the effect (e.g., Hazardous Waste Reduced), and identify a unit of measure (e.g., lbs). Environmental Effects that you have previously created will show up in the drop down list.
Editing an Environmental Effect
To edit a current Environmental Effect, click [Edit]. Under the Environmental Effects Edit screen, you can change the name and yearly amounts of each effect.
