Pollution Prevention Institute (P2I)

Organization(s) New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Project Description In fall 2008, NYS DEC announced the formation of the New York State Pollution Prevention Institute (P2I). The P2I is actively engaged in client assistance projects with 19 organizations and is reviewing proposals for an additional 38. The Institute is planning sector projects for dry cleaning, carpet manufacturing, agriculture, green chemistry, and green hospitality. NYS P2I has selected 10 organizations to conduct P2 outreach and education programs under the community grants program. The total budget for the community grants program is approximately $140,000. The P2I has hosted professional training workshops in the following areas: lean energy and environment, surface cleaning technologies, and P2 assessment techniques for the P2 Unit at NYS DEC, toxic chemicals in toys, P2 training for NYS DEC technical staff/engineers, and green housekeeping. Upcoming workshops include green building materials and green products.
