MINNEAPOLIS-BASED COMPANY PLAYS MAJOR ROLE IN UNITED NATIONS EARTH SUMMIT

 MINNEAPOLIS-BASED COMPANY PLAYS MAJOR ROLE
 IN UNITED NATIONS EARTH SUMMIT
 MINNEAPOLIS, June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Teltech Resource Network Corporation, based in Minneapolis, will play a major role in United States participation at the United Nations Earth Summit this week in Rio de Janeiro. Teltech provides the service delivery for the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Environmental and Energy Efficient Technology Transfer Clearinghouse, which will be officially introduced at the conference.
 The clearinghouse is designed primarily to help developing countries counter the environmental impact of industrialization. Pilot installations in Mexico City are already providing fast, reliable access to the most up-to-date information and expertise in areas such as pollution control and prevention, energy efficiency, health and ecological effects of pollutants and renewable energy technologies.
 For instance, when the city Guadalajara, Mexico, was reeling from the tragedies caused by the recent natural gas line leakage, the clearinghouse was able to help. Top-ranking Mexican government officials made immediate and strong edicts to manufacturing companies operating in Mexico that required them to conduct environmental risk assessments. Because new companies were not familiar with the process, guidance was needed. Manufacturers who tapped the clearinghouse were put in contact with EPA experts in environmental risk assessment and were provided with the latest OSHA standards on how U.S. assessments are conducted. "We believe with the help of environmental services like the clearhinghouse, tragedies like Guadalajara can be avoided," said Dick Anderson, Teltech president.
 Industrial and government users of the clearinghouse receive customized, guided assistance accessing two key services: a network of hundreds of EPA and other experts available for one-on-one telephone consultation on a wide range of environmental topics; and a literature searching service that allows immediate location and retrieval of needed environmental information in print.
 Teltech is an established provider of technical knowledge services. Its network of experts, which covers more than 5,000 areas of science and technology, and its interactive literature searching capability are widely used by U.S. corporate engineers and scientists as a way of finding quick solutions to technical problems.
 The company's client list includes more than half the Fortune 500 corporations. Firms gain access to Teltech's services by paying annual subscription or transaction-based fees.
