The load it places on the environment through the use of renewable and nonrenewable resources and the impact of the emissions created 2. The positive impacts of programs used on-site to protect the environment Conclusions Sustainable development derives from a commitment to a common future, where actions of today do not compromise future generations. This demands commonality between maintaining a stable and safe society (people), protecting the environment and its precious resources (planet), and generating a strong global economy necessary to support it (prosperity).

This in turn affects environmental performance and ultimately sustainable development of the plant operation. Boiler operation is a high-intensity use of energy and a key opportunity for environmental gains. By preventing corrosion, assets are protected and asset life extended, reducing replacement frequency and the consequent demand for more nonrenewable resources to replace it. Scale prevention and water management can give substantial environmental benefits through reducing fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions.
