The 16th Annual Pollution Prevention Conference & Tradeshow has already taken place. However, presentations from the event are available online.
For the past sixteen years, the Indiana Partners for Pollution Prevention (Partners) have sponsored a statewide pollution prevention conference and trade show. Conference topics have ranged from new and innovative pollution prevention technologies being used in Indiana to training on how pollution prevention can save facilities money. Over the past several years, these conferences have been extremely successful as pollution prevention (P2) practices among industry continue to grow. More manufacturers are adopting P2 technologies and methods not only because it promotes environmental best practices, but also because it benefits the company’s’ bottom line. Interest in pollution prevention is growing across the entire country and beyond. Because P2 has become a topic of great interest, this year Indiana Partners for Pollution Prevention is joining forces with the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable (NPPR) in an effort to broaden the scope of the conference and bring it to a national level.
The pollution prevention conference and trade show will be a two day event for the first time in the program’s history. Day one will consist of GreenScreen™ Training, workshops, and other speakers as well as an evening reception. Day two will have keynote presentations and three concurrent breakout tracks. Speakers will be attending from all over the country and Canada, representing the US EPA, the Great Lakes Pollution Prevention Roundtable, the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable, the Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center, Enviro-Stewards, Energizing Indiana, Duke Energy, Toyota, Subaru, and many more!
The conference will also feature a trade show of exhibitors displaying their products and services to promote pollution prevention.
The Indiana Pollution Prevention Conference & Trade Show is honored to be hosting the Governor's Awards for Environmental Excellence presentations this year. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM), in cooperation with the Lieutenant Governor's Office of Energy and Defense Development, the Indiana Department of Administration, and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, presents the recipients for the Governor's Awards for Environmental Excellence each year.
The GreenScreen ™ for Safer Chemicals is a comparative chemical hazard screening method developed by Clean Production Action to help move our society quickly and effectively toward the use of greener and safer chemicals. These in-depth experiential workshops are intended to educate designers and decision-makers on how to implement the GreenScreen ™ to compare and select safer chemicals for use in products and manufacturing processes.
The GreenScreen ™ workshops are intended for both those who perform chemical assessments and decision-makers who utilize chemical assessments to inform their decisions, i.e., design, material selection, purchasing, prioritization for replacement decisions, etc. The training is relevant for businesses at all levels in the supply chain that face increasing market and regulatory pressures to design, purchase, and sell products made with the least hazardous materials available. The training will be of particular interest to business professionals in the following areas:
When registering for Day 1 or both days of the conference, attendees will be asked if they would like to attend the GreenScreen ™ training. Space is limited, and advanced registration is required. Beyond the conference fee, there is no additional cost to attend this training.
