Many photographic processes use chromium salts. Washing the photographic plates, results in excess hexavalent chromium being discharged into wash waters and eventually into our waterways.

Q1: Considering the statement above and using the Pollution Prevention Hierarchy (Found within chapter 1), what options are available to reduce these discharges and which would be most preferable?

Q2: Evaluate and contrast source reduction, emission reduction, and waste reduction in terms of Pollution Prevention. Be specific and provide examples. (The terms source reduction, emission reduction and waste reduction are found within chapter 1).

Q3: Select a company from industry and determine whether it used a sequential engineering process or a concurrent engineering approach. Describe how the decision making hierarchy could have been improved. (Sequential and concurrent engineering topic can be found at the beginning of chapter 5 in the textbook).

Q4: Cite and explain the United States laws concerning pollution prevention, there are several. (These laws are described within chapter 4 in the textbook).
