Partners for Pollution Prevention

Partners Conference

19th Annual Pollution Prevention Conference and Tradeshow

Conference Details:

For the past eighteen 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 (P2) can save facilities money. Over the past several years, these conferences have been extremely successful as P2 practices among industry continue to grow. More manufacturers are adopting P2 technologies and methods not only because it promotes environmental best management practices, but also because it benefits the company’s bottom line. Interest in pollution prevention is growing across the entire country and beyond.
