Webinar - Using Interns to Identify and Implement E2 Opportunities

October 28, 2009

This webinar was presented as a session at the 2009 Environmental Partnership Summit.  The presenters described how their programs have used interns to successfully find Energy Efficiency (E2) opportunities for several facilities.  For example, Kansas State University’s Nancy Larson will describe how one of the facilities they work with found E2 success through interns.  In two years 3 million kW/hour and nearly $300,000 saved, this facility now has a plan to save $6 million over the next few years.

Nancy Larson, Director, Kansas State University Pollution Prevention Institute
Krysta Larson, Intern Program Coordinator, Minnesota Technical Assistance Program
Jennifer Reutzel, Environmental Specialist, Pollution Prevention Services, Iowa Department of Natural Resources

Pollution Prevention and Sustainability – Integrated Solutions and Multiple Outcomes

October 7, 2009

This webinar was presented as a session at the 2009 National Environmental Partnership Summit.  For this webinar the presenters worked with the audience to “harness the power of collaboration” by asking why pollution prevention, which has a history of working successfully with industry on process optimization and energy conservation programs, is generally not being included in sustainability programs.

Toxics in Packaging Webinar

November 12, 2008

NPPR hosted “Toxics in Packaging” webinar, Wednesday, November 19th at 2:00 pm EST.The Toxics in Packaging Clearinghouse (TPCH) presented the results of its research that screened over 750 packages, mostly from the retail sector, for the presence of 4 heavy metals – lead, cadmium, mercury, and hexavalent chromium – restricted by state toxics in packaging laws. These results are the first comprehensive assessments of restricted heavy metals in packaging, since 19 U.S. states passed toxics in packaging legislation 15 years ago, and indicate that heavy metals in packaging are still an issue and an opportunity for pollution prevention and product stewardship.
