Efforts to refurbish used gas containers, perform wildfire-related work in the winter, and recycle thousands of lead bricks were among projects winning awards at the Los Alamos National Laboratory’s annual P2 Awards ceremony held April 17 at Fuller Lodge.
Employee ideas allowed the Laboratory to save or avoid using more than 100,000 reams of paper, 3,000 chemical containers, 9,000 kilowatt hours of electricity, 50 million gallons of fuel, and 80 tons of metal.
In addition, environmental-related projects enabled the Laboratory to recycle more than 5 million liters of water and reduce the amount of hazardous and radioactive waste generated by Lab operations by more than 2,500 cubic meters.
The employees’ pollution prevention efforts offered other benefits as well. Organizing and decluttering work spaces made them safer places to work. Many of the initiatives helped the Laboratory avoid potential environmental compliance liabilities. Reusing and recycling items reduced the Laboratory’s overall space footprint. In addition, the Laboratory now uses fewer natural resources, such as fuel, energy, and chemicals, in its operations.
