Abstract
Correctional facility administrators can find sustainability-oriented green technologies and more in the Greening Corrections Technology Guidebook, a new, free online publication produced by the Corrections Technology Center of Excellence (CoE). This 62-page guidebook provides case studies, references and other detailed information. Seven chapters follow an executive summary and introduction which cover topics, such as integrating technology and people; lighting; HVAC systems; plug-in appliances (including pumps and motors); materials flow (including recycling and toxics); water; and energy (including transportation). Appendixes provide information about financing mechanisms and a case study regarding waterless urinals.
