New Industry Groups: Rubber & Marine Technologies

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description MA OTA plans to hold two focus groups in the spring of 2005 for those Massachusetts companies in the rubber industry sector (typically from, but not exclusive to, SICs 2821, 2822, and 301 thru 306) and those companies in the marine technology industry sector (typically from, but not exclusive to, SICs 357, 369, 376, 381, 382, 386, 387, and 873). The overall goal of the meetings is to assist OTA to (1) develop a better understanding of the pollution prevention opportunities and regulatory compliance issues of the companies in these sectors, as well as the supply chain for the companies, and (2) to identify the types of services OTA can provide to address these opportunities and issues. The assessment of pollution prevention opportunities will consider OTA's High Priority Substance Initiative and take note of opportunities arising from non-environmental regulations. The assessment of regulatory compliance issues will focus on environmental concerns (e.g., toxics use, hazardous waste, air emissions, water use, wastewater discharges). Of particular interest will be issues surrounding those products that contain lead, lead compounds, or other toxics.
