Sustainable Surface Finishing: Pollution Prevention Practices and Innovations

Join us to explore opportunities for pollution prevention and sustainability at metal finishing facilities!
Metal surface finishing operations generate significant volumes of solid and hazardous wastes, which continue to become increasingly expensive to manage. Pollution prevention eliminates pollution at its source, and many waste and pollution minimization techniques are inexpensive and easy to implement. Reducing pollution leads to increased operational profits, while demonstrating your shop’s commitment to reducing environmental impact in your community.
Attendees will:
  • Learn key tips to reduce pollution and increase operational efficiency.
  • Identify funding sources to support sustainable changes that reduce pollution.
  • Connect to programs and individuals that can support your sustainability journey.
Speakers on this session include Cassie Carroll, Program Director at the Smart Energy Design Assistance Center (SEDAC) at the University of Illinois and the Businesses Reducing Impact on the Environment (BRITE) Program staff at the Cook County Department of Environment and Sustainability. More speakers to be announced.
