This conference will focus on industrial energy and
environmental changes & challenges in a post 9/11 world. The Pollution
Prevention (P2) Roundtables are DEP-sponsored forums for Business & Industry
to meet face-to-face on a regular basis to discuss the implementation of
pollution prevention and environmental improvement programs. An overview of
the P2 roundtable format can be found here
in a PDF file.

Breakout Session Topics:
Dealing with Industrial Energy Issues
Energy breakout sessions will cover renewable energy technologies,
co-generation technologies, energy efficiency process related technologies
(such as combined heat and power systems), demand side monitoring and
energy purchasing strategies.
“expert” presentations will address 1) a broad overview of the current
state of the market for a particular aspect such as renewable energy, 2)
how industrial users can go about evaluating their real potential for
implementing a technology or strategy, 3) common pitfalls and mistakes to
avoid, 5) expectations regarding resources required including time and
personnel and 4) suggested initial steps for getting started.
corresponding industrial case study will look at one (or more) firm’s
experience with addressing this aspect. The presentation will address how
the project came about, the resources involved, the nature of the project
plan, lessons learned, unique solutions developed and final results.
Beneficial Use of Industrial Waste Streams & Recycling
Beneficial Use and Recycling breakout sessions will address how industrial
facilities can, in addition to reducing waste streams, make beneficial use
of their industrial waste streams – whether reuse in process or used as
an input to someone else’s process. Along these lines, additional issues
will be discussed such as: the regulatory constraints and opportunities
for pursuing beneficial use of industrial waste streams, recycling and
process related technologies that make possible beneficial use industrial
waste streams, market opportunities and resources for exploring the
beneficial use of a waste stream (one of the biggest areas of need is
figuring out if a waste stream could be beneficially used by someone else)
and real world examples of companies that have successfully converted a
waste stream to a beneficial use.
Industrial Water Usage
Industrial Water Usage and Conservation breakout session will address
emerging technologies and practices which can lead to improved industrial
water conservation efforts including treatment technologies. Speakers will
cover both the state of the market and state of the art technologies which
can be applied to their process, as well as in other strategies which can
be implemented to reduce the amount of water consumed in process.
Effective control and treatment of waste water prior to discharge will
also be an important issue in this session.
Storm Water Issues
Stormwater Management breakout session will address the regulatory aspects
regarding stormwater management and the technologies and strategies that
can be employed to address industrial site stormwater issues. The
presentations will range from those who know very little to nothing about
the issue but suddenly may find themselves faced with it, to those that
have had stormwater programs in the past and are seeking to better respond
to new regulation.
Lunch & Dinner Presentation Topics:
Homeland Security Issues for PA Industry
Environmental Policy & Regulation: Direction & Change
Energy Policy in Pennsylvania
