There isn't much time left...



...to apply for your MVP2 (Most Valuable P2) Award.  Applications are now 
due June 4 to the NPPR office.  You can find applications at 
www.p2.org/p2week/awards.cfm as well as summaries of past award winners. 
 Don't forget about industries, the folks who have the opportunity to do 
much of the P2.  You can encourage your past state P2 Award winners or 
applicants to apply for the MVP2 award.

For example, the 3M plant in Brownwood, TX won a state P2 award and a 2003 
MVP2 award for their history of environmental management and stewardship 
activities.  They reduced TRI and VOC air emissions by 95% since 1990 as a 
result of solventless and water-based technologies.   They also developed a 
very successful energy conservation program that saved the plant $1.5 
million in 2002.

Sanmina, an electronics manufacturer in Colorado Springs, CO implemented P2 
projects that used less hazardous chemicals resulting in a 90% reduction in 
VOCs and reducing hazardous waste by 95%.

Ortho-McNeil Pharmaceutical, Spring House, PA, installed a 75 KW solar 
electric system and produces over 78,000 kilowatt hours per year.  This 
satisfies 1.4% of the total peak demand at the facility, and will result in 
a reduction of 8150 pounds of NOx, 18 tons of SOx, and 1583 tons of CO2.
