If you haven't already, don't forget to sign up for this important pollution prevention workshop, next week in Michigan.  Focused on general manufacturing plants, utilities and steel mills.

FORMULAS FOR SUCCESS IN MERCURY POLLUTION PREVENTION (P2), EAST LANSING MARRIOTT AT UNIVERSITY PLACE, EAST LANSING, MICHIGAN. The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality's Environmental Assistance Division, Air Quality Division, and Office of the Great Lakes, in cooperation with over a dozen co-sponsoring organizations, are sponsoring a mercury pollution prevention workshop. Focusing on "Formulas for Success," this workshop will feature the latest pollution prevention (P2) techniques on mercury devices and alternatives, voluntary P2 partnerships, policy, and steps for constructing a mercury elimination program. Innovative case studies will be featured that present step-by-step measures for achieving tangible results for gas and electric utilities and steel mills. Large industrial complexes, manufacturing facilities, paper mills, and taconite mining operations will also benefit from the steel mill case studies, since many of their uses and scale of operation are quite similar. Cost: $50 includes continental breakfast, lunch, and workshop materials.
