The University of Missouri Environmental Assistance Center announces the start of a new program to help Missouri businesses cut costs and reduce environmental impact. From May 19-23. MOEAC will launch an intensive, week-long course on pollution prevention that will cover how to assess inefficiencies in energy and water use, wastewater generation, stormwater controls, solid waste and hazardous waste. It will also provide instruction and tools for weighing options and identifying those with the quickest return.
The course will be available as credit and non-credit through the MU College of Engineering. If your business is interested in sending representatives through Pollution Prevention: Good Industry Practices and Applied Engineering (also known as "P2 boot camp"), contact the Environmental Assistance Center at 573-882-5011 or MOEAC@missouri.edu for registration information.
What if you could hire an engineer for $7/hour to identify ways for your company to save money and improve environmental performance? We are recruiting industries to host engineering interns between June 2 and Aug. 8. Interns will identify, assess and recommend pollution prevention strategies, under the supervision and guidance of MU engineering faculty. If your company is interested in hosting an intern, please complete and return the application before March 1. See the P2 Business Application Letter (pdf) and P2 Business Project Proposal for more details.
