Pollution Prevention (P2) Program

The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) Pollution Prevention (P2) Program is designed to provide P2 technical assistance and training to manufacturers. TDEC’s P2 program is partially funded through an EPA Pollution Prevention Grant and has three main components; (1) technical assistance and training, (2) Tennessee Sustainable Spirits, and the (3) Tennessee Green Star Partnership.

Technical assistance and training provided under TDEC’s P2 program during 2018-2020 Federal Fiscal Years is largely focused on industry in Tennessee that report releases to EPA via the Toxic Release Inventory, with specific emphasis on Food and Beverage Manufacturers.

TDEC plans to offer two virtual workshops in August 2020 to discuss what partners make in Tennessee as well as hear from two Green Star Partners on Best Practice Management as it relates to Pollution Prevention measures and Toxic Release Inventory control on products.

Two virtual workshops will be held through remote video on August 12th and 19th.
