Information : Lead Maintenance Technology Center for the Environment
Naval Air Systems Command has appointed Naval Aviation Depot (NADEP), Jacksonville as its Lead Maintenance Technology Center (LMTC) for the Environment for the six NADEPs. Its mission is to facilitate the continuous reduction of pollutants by changing materials and processes used in Naval Aviation maintenance, while ensuring product quality and integrity. The central theme at the Jacksonville LMTC for the Environment is pollution prevention, not hazardous waste control.
There are several means of accomplishing this task including:
Developing and maintaining a database of materials and processes used in aviation maintenance Prioritizing needed efforts for materials and process substitutions according to compelling regulations and payback
Coordinating research, development, test and evaluation efforts relative to field activity materials and process pollution prevention projects
Providing technical support to maintenance in the Navy to affect material and process changes
Communicating with industry and other government agencies
Providing technical support for new weapon system acquisition, hazardous material minimization efforts, and logistics.
The research being conducted toward finding suitable substitutes for hazardous materials and developing alternate processes has shown dramatic savings in both dollars and waste generation.
