The Region 7 Pollution Prevention Roundtable (R7P2RT) is a group made up of region 7 state programs, stakeholders and EPA that work with pollution prevention projects primarily in EPA region 7. The group communicates through a listserv and meets virtually or in-person about six times a year. If you would like to be added to the distribution list, e-mail Nancy at email@example.com.
The purpose of the group is to share P2 resources, collaborate on various projects and learn about new P2 opportunities that advance P2 implementation, resulting in reduced emissions, improving environmental and public health in the region and beyond. From the early 2000 through 2018, the Pollution Prevention Information Center housed the R7P2RT meeting resources. As an active member of the R7P2RT, K-State PPI begin posting the resources in Fall of 2020 until a more permanent location is available.
