Project Title & Description
TechSolve Inc. - Pollution Prevention Intern Program
This project reflects a partnership between TechSolve, Inc. (the local Manufacturing Extension Partnership assistance center), the Hamilton County Solid Waste Management District and the Butler County Department of Environmental Services to develop a two-county Pollution Prevention (P2) Internship program. The partners will develop an intern training program, recruit companies for placement of the interns in the summer of 2008, recruit a dozen local university students, and train the students in P2 and waste reduction strategies. The interns will receive on-site technical support during their placement at the companies and will complete case summary reports as a guide to implement suggested P2 projects.
