TOPIC: What’s in Your Wallet? Reduce Waste and Save Money
Description: The goal of the UA SafeState Pollution Prevention Program is to ensure that a business can yield an economic advantage while also protecting public health and the environment. Making Alabama businesses as economically efficient as possible creates jobs and improves Alabama’s economy. Funded by a grant from the U.S. EPA, the UA SafeState P2 Program assists businesses with free technical assistance and training to find ways to reduce waste and save money. By reviewing utility records and performing an onsite walkthrough, UA SafeState will identify all reasonable cost savings measures to assist the overall operations. Participating businesses will receive a no-cost, in-depth assessment of plant operations. This presentation provides an update on program activities and shares some identified best practices and low-hanging fruit for energy efficiency, water efficiency, chemical and waste reduction opportunities.
