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

K-State and other schools with business and industry," said David Carter, pollution prevention and energy efficiency specialist at the institute and coordinator of the intern program.

"Collaborations focus on projects to reduce energy use, emissions and wastes, which benefit a company's bottom line and the Kansas environment," Carter said. "Students work with a technical adviser from the Pollution Prevention Institute and a host company to research energy efficiency/pollution prevention projects."

The results from the program have been outstanding, Larson said.

"In the first three years of the intern projects, participating companies have implemented 48 of the recommendations -- or 66 percent -- made through the program," she said. "These implemented projects have resulted in savings of more than 28 million kilowatt hours of electricity, 107.5 million gallons of water, 4,150 tons of waste and more than $5 million in operating or disposal costs."

The intern program is one of several programs offered by K-State's Pollution Prevention Institute, an agency that is funded primarily through grants. The institute houses the Kansas Small Business Environmental Assistance Program and offers Kansas industry and institutions free, confidential, technical-environmental compliance assistance.
