2014 Kansas Pollution Prevention Awards

Award description: Have you recently completed a pollution prevention project and would like others to know about your success?  Any Kansas business, industry, community or community group, school, or organization is eligible to apply for the Kansas pollution prevention awards. In order to determine the success of the project, the project must have been implemented at least six months prior to the application but no earlier than 2011. Recycling projects are not eligible. Applications from prior award recipients must denote new projects. These P2 efforts are in addition to or exceed what is required by law; therefore, submitted projects should be voluntary efforts to minimize or prevent industrial and environmental concerns. Compliance with current environmental laws and regulations will be taken into consideration during the review process.
