The websites listed below address pollution prevention (P2) technologies and initiatives that might be useful for promoting or implementing your own P2 programs or initiatives.
- IDEM Compliance and Technical Assistance Program (CTAP):
- The IDEM CTAP webpage offers many P2 resources, including P2 for Businesses which outlines P2 program development and P2 project implementation.
- The CleanerSolutions Database is maintained by the Toxics Use Reduction Institute at UMass Lowell. It contains test results and vendor information regarding solvent substitution for surface cleaning.
- University Library at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign:
- Due to loss of funding, the Great Lakes Regional Pollution Prevention Roundtable (GLRPPR) has ceased operations after 25 years. Thankfully, the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center’s Sustainability Information Curator will be transitioning GLRPPR resources to ensure that they remain available through Pollution Prevention 101, a guide for P2 technical assistance providers who are new to P2. It includes resources, case studies, software tools and databases, sector/subject specific guidance, compliance resources, statistics and data sets, methods and standard information, news, and other P2 tools.
- U.S. EPA Environmental Stewardship:
- The U.S. EPA’s Environmental Stewardship website provides links and tips for working towards promoting and practicing environmental stewardship throughout the United States.
- The P2 InfoHouse is the nation's premier online repository of pollution prevention (P2) information and resources. It houses a searchable online collection of more than 50,000 P2-related publications, fact sheets, case studies and technical reports. Utilized by P2 professionals, business and industry, academic institutions and government agencies, it is the largest single electronic resource for P2 information in the country.
- Formerly housed at the P2RIC, the Pollution Prevention Info House is now administered and hosted by Iowa DNR’s Pollution Prevention Services.
