Featured compliance assistance resources

Featured programs 

Environmental regulations assistance:  K-State PPI operates the Kansas Small Business Environmental Assistance Program (SBEAP) whose goal is to assist small businesses (approximately 100 employees or less) with understanding and complying with environmental regulations.  In addition to on-site assistance, PPI hosts various webinars and trainings on specific environmental regulations. Training videos, environmental tools and publications are located throughout our website.

Pollution prevention assistance: Funded through various grants from the EPA, KDHE, USDA, and Department of Energy, PPI provides technical assistance to industry, institutions and communities to further their pollution prevention goals. These services  focus on reducing emissions or wastes at the source through process, technology or material changes.  

Intern program: The PPI intern program pairs engineering and environmental science students with Kansas business and industry. PPI recruits, hires, trains, and mentors the interns who work on-site at the Kansas facility for 10 weeks during the summer. P2 Intern Program Overview Video New
