U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY TO SPONSOR WORKSHOP ON 33/50 POLLUTION PREVENTION PROGRAM

 U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY TO SPONSOR WORKSHOP
 ON 33/50 POLLUTION PREVENTION PROGRAM
 ATLANTA, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will sponsor a one-day workshop on Feb. 6, designed to promote the goals of the agency's 33/50 Program.
 The workshop will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, 265 Peachtree St. N.E., Atlanta.
 The 33/50 Program is a voluntary pollution prevention initiative designed to reduce releases and off-site transfers of a targeted set of 17 chemicals by 33 percent by the end of 1992 and by 50 percent by the end of 1995.
 Pollution prevention is the use of materials, processes or practices that reduce or eliminate pollutants or wastes. While the 33/50 Program focuses on 17 specific toxics, the EPA encourages pollution prevention as the preferred method for reducing or eliminating all hazardous and non-hazardous wastes.
 The one-day workshop will begin with an orientation to pollution prevention and the 33/50 Program. The workshop will also include industry-specific presentations on toxics reduction opportunities in furniture finishing, wood preserving, food processing, and textile dyeing.
 With the support of industrial groups and Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) reporting companies, the workshop will provide technical assistance to those engineers and production managers directly involved with implementing the changes necessary to achieve the desired toxics reductions.
 For more information on the agenda and early registration, contact Rita Jones of Peer Consultants at 513-252-1222.
