[IDEM] Indiana Partners for Pollution Prevention adds four new members
Start Date: 12/11/2013 All Day
End Date: 12/11/2013
Entry Description

Electro-Spec, Enterscape, MasterGuard, and NISCO Cooper were inducted into the Indiana Partners for Pollution Prevention (Partners) program during their December 4th meeting hosted by Integrity Biofuels in Morristown, Indiana. These companies join 68 other Partners that pledge to incorporate pollution prevention into their products, services and processes.

 

The Partners organization is comprised of Indiana industries, businesses, nonprofit organizations and governmental entities that are interested in pollution prevention and the financial and environmental benefits pollution prevention projects can bring. Partners hold quarterly meetings and an annual conference and trade show, enabling members to exchange ideas, receive updates on regulations, and hear pollution prevention success stories.

 

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management’s (IDEM) Office of Pollution Prevention and Technical Assistance facilitates Partners by coordinating and promoting networking opportunities, voluntary pollution prevention activities and participation in state recognition programs. IDEM Assistant Commissioner Rick Bossingham said, “The Indiana Partners for Pollution Prevention learn from one another about new innovations and work together to promote pollution prevention in Indiana. We are very pleased to welcome these four new members.”
