Mobile Outreach for Pollution Prevention (MOPP)

Organization(s) New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Project Description In October 2005, the NYS DEC and the NY Environmental Facilities Corporation hosted a visit from the MOPP. The MOPP is a 35-foot converted recreational vehicle that tours the country, bringing the latest in pollution prevention technology to small automotive businesses. It is owned by the Iowa Waste Reduction Center, a subsidiary of the University of Northern Iowa. A few examples of P2 technology found in the MOPP include a bioremediation parts washing system, antifreeze filtration unit, used oil furnace, high volume low pressure (HVLP) spray gun with Laser Touch Targeting device, hot soap degreasing parts washer, and much more. The MOPP first stopped at the DEC headquarters in Albany allowing many curious DEC staff the opportunity to learn more about this unique outreach approach. The MOPP continued its outreach at an Albany area car dealership; the Long Island Gasoline Retailers Association (LIGRA) Industry Trade Show in Jericho, NY; and the Erie County Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) in Cheektowaga, NY. DEC staff is in the preliminary stages of scheduling a return visit of the MOPP to New York State.
