Join us for our monthly EcoReps Lunch & Learn workshop featuring a free vegetarian lunch and locals making a difference in sustainability! To kickoff the spring series on Friday, Jan. 25th at noon in Ekstrom Library room W210, we'll hear from Executive Director Lissa McCracken and Speed School student engineer, Alex Beebe, of the Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center (KPPC).
Established in 1994, KPPC is a state-mandated technical assistance resource center. As part of the J.B. Speed School of Engineering at the University of Louisville, KPPC has the resources, expertise and experienced engineering and technical staff to help Kentucky’s businesses, industries and other organizations stay environmentally sustainable and competitive.
KPPC engineers work with clients to provide customized technical services that help lower operating costs by reducing waste and improving efficiency. KPPC’s on-site assessments have helped nearly 800 Kentucky businesses and organizations improve environmental performance and lower operating costs. At this EcoReps workshop, they will describe what they do and detail a project they are doing with distilleries.
