The Environmental Aspects of Building the Saturn Plant 982115
It is often argued that environmental regulations stifle economic development by diverting resources from wealth building to environmental protection. It is not unusual for those responsible for attracting business and industry to a state or city to oppose strengthening environmental regulations for fear that new or more stringent regulations will discourage industry from their locale due to the increased cost of doing business in that area. To counter this belief, the purpose of this paper is to detail the environmental features incorporated into building the Saturn facility. Additionally, the proven and expected benefits of going beyond compliance with environmental regulations will be examined.
