22nd Annual Pollution Prevention Conference & Tradeshow
Sep 18 all-day

For the past twenty two years, the Indiana Partners for Pollution Prevention (Partners) SSP-jpeg-P2-Indiana-logohave 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. 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.

The Partners conference will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana on September 18 and will feature two tracks of breakout sessions focused on success stories and water topics.
