EPA Awards PennTAP $412,643 Grant For Pollution Prevention Energy Efficiency Technical Assistance

On September 25, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced the award of $9.3 million to 42 groups nationwide in support of pollution prevention activities, including
Penn State's PA Technical Assistance Program for businesses.

“We are pleased to support the innovative efforts of these organizations which will lead to healthier communities,” said EPA Mid-Atlantic Regional Administrator Cosmo Servidio. “Their efforts ensure safer spaces and cleaner air for all to live, work and play.”

PennTAP will provide Pollution Prevention Energy Efficiency (P2E2) technical assistance and Economy, Energy and Environment (E3) events for Pennsylvania food and beverage manufacturers as well as metal manufacturers and fabricators. 

The project will encourage the adoption and implementation of source reduction approaches. The adoption of these P2 approaches will help save money by reducing resource use, expenditures, and waste while at the same time reducing Pennsylvania manufacturer’s environmental footprint. 

The project activities will also educate the next generation of engineering students.

The EPA grant was $412,643 and the total project is $825,286.
