U.S. EPA PRESENTS INDUSTRY WORKSHOPS FOR POLLUTION PREVENTION

U.S. EPA PRESENTS INDUSTRY WORKSHOPS FOR POLLUTION PREVENTION
 SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) will be presenting a series of pollution prevention workshops around the country to help industry find cost- effective solutions to the use of toxic chemicals.
 The workshops are part of the 33/50 Program, a voluntary initiative for industry to reduce releases and off-site transfers of a targeted set of 17 toxic chemicals by 33 percent by the end of 1992 and by 50 percent by the end of 1995. U.S. EPA is inviting companies to participate in this program by examining their own processes and products in order to identify and implement cost-effective pollution prevention practices for these chemicals.
 The first workshop will take place on Nov. 13 at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles. Focusing on regional industries, the meeting will include representatives from the fields of petroleum refining, inorganic chemical manufacturing, plastic products manufacturing and aerospace. It will be followed by workshops in Chicago on Nov. 21, Houston on Dec. 5, Atlanta on Feb. 6, and Edison, N.J., on April 9.
 The one-day workshops will provide technical assistance to those engineers and production managers directly involved with implementing means of pollution prevention and toxics reduction. Industry-specific sessions on reduction opportunities will be organized by industry representatives and trade associations to assure a full dialogue of technical production measures.
 Further information on the workshops can be obtained from Rita Jones at 513-252-1222.
