Abstract:

One of the goals of operating a sustainable facility is to reduce the facility's environmental impacts often translates to energy usage, since energy production has significant environmental impacts. There is a definite synergy between sustainability and an EMS.

The Kent County Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility (KCRWTF) is the first wastewater facility in the country to be certified to ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, and the National Biosolid Partnership's EMS standard. The KCRWTF modified its EHS-MS to include sustainability commitments and now refers to it as a Sustainability Management System (SMS).
