During Pollution Prevention Week 2014, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, in partnership with the U.S. EPA, the Michigan Manufacturing Association and several Michigan organizations, will provide a one-day seminar highlighting sustainable Manufacturing in Michigan.

This seminar is intended for small and medium sized manufacturers/suppliers, local government representatives, LEAN consultants, environmental consultants, original equipment manufacturers, universities, community foundations, and economic development and manufacturing associations. There is limited space available for exhibitors.
