This session is a more in-depth discussion of select  pollution prevention topics such as the benefits of air sampling, facility emission control, ozone concerns and impacts, how to lower emission expenses and new technologies for preventing air pollution.

An afternoon focus on green chemistry will discuss how to use process reengineering to achieve a healthier, safer environment, how to reduce or eliminate hazardous substances and methods to maximize the amount of raw material that ends up in the final product. Participants will also learn about "hit list" chemicals, how to design energy-efficient processes and to use environmentally safe substances whenever possible.
