Welcome to FPEAC
The Food Processing Environmental Assistance Center is committed to developing and promoting innovative strategies that achieve better environmental results, reduce costs, and promote environmental stewardship throughout the Food Processing Industry. The goal of the Center is to become a primary provider of environmental information, resources, and training to assist small and medium sized food processors in achieving environmental compliance and stewardship.
The U.S. food processing sector, as with other industrial and commercial sectors, faces increasingly stringent environmental rules, many of which have their roots in federal statutes and are implemented through state laws and regulations by various agencies. Most of these rules relate to the treatment and disposal of food processing wastes. Often, permitting, monitoring, reporting and other regulatory requirements are implemented by multiple agencies (e.g., composting operations may be regulated by the environmental protection agency, department of health and department of agriculture).
