P2 Week 2001 - Rhode Island

Organization(s) Rhode Island Dept. of Environmental Management
Project Description Governor Lincoln Almond joined Department of Environmental Management (DEM) Director Jan Reitsma in announcing the winners of this year's Governor's Awards for Pollution Prevention and Environmental Leadership at a breakfast ceremony at the Providence Marriott during P2 week 2001.

"By joining forces with the Narragansett Bay Commission, the University of Rhode Island, the Environmental Protection Agency and a host of organizations, our Department of Environmental Management has come a long way in addressing pollution prevention," said Almond. "I applaud all the companies we honor today for their commitment to sound environmental management practices that are designed to curb pollution before it begins."

"Pollution prevention is good for human health and the environment, and it makes good business sense as well," said Reitsma. "Companies can save money on their costs, for raw materials, waste treatment, and disposal; reduce their regulatory burdens, and permit fees; and at the same time improve their employees' work environment."

The awards recipients were:

-S&A/ Paramount Printing (Lincoln) for Press WashUp, Solvent & Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Reduction -General Dynamics/Electric Boat (North Kingstown) for a New Powder Coating Facility for Large Submarine Parts

-Naval Undersea Warfare Center (Newport) for their Pollution Prevention Program

-Mr. Harold Gadon (Cranston) for his participation in the Metal Finishing Strategic Goals Programs

-Tytex, Inc. (Woonsocket) for their pollution prevention efforts

-Community College of Rhode Island (Lincoln, Warwick, Providence)
