McWane Concludes Another Successful P2C Competition

Every year McWane conducts a Pollution Prevention Challenge (P2C) where employees from around the world submit projects that decrease the company’s environmental footprint. This year 32 entries were received corporate wide. Finalists presented their projects on October 12, 2017 before a panel of judges and McWane Ductile Ohio was awarded first place. Their project eliminated almost 90 tons of greenhouse gases per year, 30 tons of landfill waste, and over 850 hours of labor per year not to mention increased worker safety and morale.

Amerex came in second place with a project on compressed air monitoring and McWane Ductile Utah came in third with a building station paint mat project.  The winners of the Why Didn’t’ I Think of That award this year for their innovative, simple and low cost solutions that produced relatively small but important environmental benefits were Manchester Tank Elkhart for a lubricant reduction project and McWane Ductile Utah for a project that reduced wood dunnage.

Congratulations to this year’s winners!
