Pollution Prevention Intern Program

Organization(s) New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Project Description The New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) is initiating a new program to connect interns with a science background to facilities/corporations that are implementing green policies and actions. Interns work on specific projects that reduce toxics, wastes, energy, and/or water use while at the same time saving money. Applicants have been targeted using the Environmental Excellence Award winners and EPA Performance Track members. Students are matched with a facility for participation this summer. Each intern is required to prepare a final report.

During the summer of 2008, six interns worked on specific projects that reduce toxics, wastes, energy and/or water use and save money at the following facilities/organizations: Covanta Hempstead, Covanta Niagara, Covanta Onondaga, Council on the Environment of New York City, NXP Semiconductor, and Modern Landfill. The P2 Intern Coordinator conducted site visits at each facility. Each intern presented a final report at a meeting in Albany on August 14, 2008.
