Pollution Prevention (P2) Program
Our goal is to ensure that a business can yield an economic advantage while also protecting public health and the environment.
Making Alabama businesses as economically efficient as possible creates jobs and improves Alabama’s economy.
About the P2 Program
Partially funded by a grant from the U.S. EPA, the UA SafeState P2 Program assists businesses with technical assistance and training to find ways to reduce waste and save money. The assessments examine energy efficiency, water conservation, chemical use and waste reduction opportunities.
For participating businesses, UA SafeState is committed to conduct a FREE in-depth assessment of plant operations from a pollution control and prevention standpoint. UA SafeState will identify all reasonable cost savings measures to assist the overall operations.

The records review is followed by a site visit and facility walk through (virtual assessments are an option). A confidential recommendations report is provided to the participating business free of charge.
