K-State Pollution Prevention Institute's intern program named best
Date:9/16/2009

The Pollution Prevention Institute at Kansas State University is being honored for one of its programs by the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable.

The K-State institute's intern program has received the roundtable group's Most Valuable Pollution Prevention Program award, also called the MVP2 award, as the best pollution prevention project/program. The honor will be presented Tuesday, Sept. 22, in Washington, D.C.

The award is presented based on a program's innovation, measurable results, its transferability to different regions and different organizations, and other factors. Some of the judging criteria also included the development and/or utilization of new pollution prevention technology that addresses an environmental problem in a new way; solid pollution prevention results; and optimization of available resources.

The Pollution Prevention Institute is part of the K-State Engineering Extension program. The institute has provided pollution prevention technical assistance to businesses, industry, institutions and agencies for the last 15 years in an effort to help them reduce wastes and emissions at the source. The institute works with entities to help them identify changes in material technology and/or processes that will reduce potential pollution at the source and result in cost and environmental savings.

"Traditionally, the Pollution Prevention Institute provided these source-reduction services through an environmental hot line and on-site assistance," said Nancy Larson, institute director. "But when the institute piloted a pollution prevention intern program in 2006, it began to identify major source reduction opportunities for industry and institutions, resulting in significant environmental improvements and cost savings."

"The Pollution Prevention Institute's intern program is a nonregulatory program offered in the summer and designed to link top-level engineering and environmental sciences students from
