Clean Air Workshop slated for construction companies Feb. 5
Kansas State University's Small Business Environmental Assistance Program will host a free Constructing Clean Air Workshop Feb. 5 for construction companies and others with off-road diesel fleets.
The workshop will be from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the Johnson County Sunset Drive building at 11811 S. Sunset Drive, Olathe. "Attendees will learn how their off-road fleet is affected by air quality regulations and how they can reduce their air emissions," said Nancy Larson, director of the Pollution Prevention Institute, a part of the SBEAP at K-State.
The workshop will cover incentive programs to install diesel emission-reducing equipment, strategies to reduce diesel emissions, funding resources and opportunities, Larsen said. It also will include a discussion panel with personnel from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The workshop is funded in part by the KDHE.
