The Environmental Sustainability Resource Center (ESRC) along with the Pollution Prevention Resource Exchange (P2Rx™), formerly a national network of regional information centers, is no longer an active pollution prevention (P2) resource as a result of the U.S. EPA eliminating the funding in 2018 for the Pollution Prevention Information Network (PPIN).
The Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center (KPPC) began to receive this funding back in 2011 to assume administration of the operational objectives of the ESRC from the North Carolina Department of Natural Resources.
The objectives of the ESRC were to provide technical environmental sustainability information and training to industrial service providers in EPA Regions 3 & 4. Region 3 includes Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, D.C., Delaware and Maryland. Region 4 includes Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
A key resource that emerged from the PPIN funding and evolved over the years had been the ESRC website which made available a collection of sustainability and pollution prevention related resources. Some of that content has been archived here on the KPPC website.
ESRC web content is no longer maintained as of October 1, 2018.
