PAEP P2E2 RT 3rd Quarter Meeting/PEDA & NGV Grant Outreach, P&G Wyoming County. The Pennsylvania Association of Environmental Professionals Pollution Prevention and Energy Efficiency Roundtable (PAEP P2E2 RT) held their third quarter meeting on August 5th at Procter and Gamble. Approximately twenty five people attended the event representing the following organizations from the northeast, southeast and northcentral regions of the Commonwealth: Tobyhanna Army Depot; Wilkes University; Sanofi-Pasteur; DEP; Scranton Army Ammunition Plant; NEPA Alliance; ACT Engineers; PPL Susquehanna; CNG Applications; SEDA Council of Governments; Moody and Associates, Inc.; EMS Consulting, LLC; and ACT Engineers. P&G discussed their sustainability initiatives.
The tour focused on manufacturing and their truck and fork lift conversion to CNG. Since August 2012, Procter & Gamble Mehoopany, has converted their local 22 truck fleet that shuttles P&G’s Bounty, Charmin, Pampers, and Luvs between their manufacturing plant and their distribution warehouse to CNG. This has eliminated over 400,000 gallons/year of diesel fuel usage, lowered emissions and carbon footprint, and lowered their cost of fleet operation. P&G is completely energy self-sufficient and their accomplishments were recently highlighted in the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry’s publication the CATALYST (p. 32). http://digital.graphcompubs.com/publication/?i=205226 .
This RT event was the backdrop for OPPEA to provide information on the PADEP PEDA and upcoming NGV Round 3 grants. Several attendees expressed an interest in both grants. (Contact: Janet Warnick 570.826.2475)
