The 2006 Amendments to the Toxics Use Reduction Act (TURA) created alternative planning opportunities for companies subject to TURA that have completed a TUR Plan and two or more updates. One alternative is a Resource Conservation (RC) plan. Once prepared, these alternative plans must be certified by TUR Planners who have been approved by MassDEP by earning additional TUR credits in the appropriate disciplines.
The TURA Program defines Resource Conservation as "an action that decreases the use or consumption of a natural asset such as water, energy, or raw material or increases the efficiency of the use of the assets, without increasing risk to the public, workers, consumers or the environment and without increasing the amount of waste generated". 310 CMR 50.10
TURI provides training programs to meet DEP requirements and to enhance Planners' skills in the area of resource conservation, so that Planners can evaluate and certify RC plans.
On Friday, February 7th, a full day of RC training will be offered at the Devens Commons Center at 31 Andrews Parkway in Devens. This day-long training is available to any TUR Planner. It is also available to those who attended the first RC training day in January. For those who attended in January, taking the full day workshop on February 7 will provide the number of credits necessary for certification as a TURA RC Planner. These Planners, as well as TUR Planners already authorized to certify RC plans will be given priority for attending this space-limited training. Planners will be awarded 6 continuing education credits (2 for each of the following natural asset areas: energy, water and materials contributing to solid waste) for attending this training. Other TUR Planners can also attend this training for 6 TUR Planning continuing education credits.
