Delegation from Brazil

Organization(s) New Jersey Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description On September 19, 2006, the New Jersey Pollution Prevention Program hosted a delegation from the State of Sao Paulo, Brazil, the largest State in Brazil. The delegation was from the pollution prevention (P2) element of the Company of Environmental Sanitation Technology (Cetesb). Cetesb is the organization linked to the government of Sao Paulo responsible for the evaluation, prevention, and control of environmental pollution, as well as the execution of scientific and technological services directly or indirectly related to its field of action. Linked to the State's Secretary of the Environment, it constitutes a mixed economy partnership divided in 31 units located in the State's main cities.

Currently, they have a voluntary P2 program whereby they attempt to encourage industries to reduce pollution at the source. They are interested in developing a more robust program and wanted to learn about the New Jersey experience. They were particularly interested in how the NJ DEP collects, manages, and utilizes data. The P2 Technical Assistance Program located at Rutgers University also participated in the meeting.

A representative from the New Jersey P2 program was invited to attend a workshop in Sao Paulo in November to assist and learn about their program development.
