Michigan Business Pollution Prevention Partnership

Michigan has a new voluntary pollution prevention recognition program.  The Michigan Business Pollution Prevention Partnership, or MBP3, is a new voluntary, business-focused P2 program that emphasizes measurable results.  It promotes source reduction, waste minimization and technology transfer.  The Partnership is unique in that it was business-initiated, and is now managed by a project team comprised of government, business and business associations.   Governor John Engler introduced the program during last year's Pollution prevention week saying, "This allow businesses to apply creative and cost-effective techniques to reduce waste and prevent releases of hazardous substances."   Business who volunteer to take part in the program and commit to a P2 agenda will be acknowledge for their P2 efforts through Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Environmental Assistance Division's Pollution Prevention Annual Report to the Legislation.  Participating businesses will also r!
eceive a certificate of recognition signed by Governor Engler and DEQ Director, Russell Harding.
