P2 Success Stories

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description In addition to supporting environmental research, OTA is helping draw attention to select P2 success stories throughout MA. A March 2001 event at BOC Edwards in Wilmington, organized by DEP with support from OTA, recognized that company's considerable commitment to environmental management and responsibility. Highlighted at the event was the facility's recently installed water filtration and recirculation system developed by Ludlow-based CASTion, Inc. Acknowledgments from DEP Commissioner Lauren Liss, Deputy Secretary Gina McCarthy, and State Senator Bruce Tarr, and comments from BOC Edwards executives emphasized the link between environmental and economic performance. OTA is helping to arrange a similar event at a Western MA metal finisher that went through a dramatic transformation; the company remade itself as an environmentally conscious manufacturer and, as a result, has reaped significant economic benefits.
