Among this genre of programs, the Minnesota Technical Assistance program (MnTAP) is one of the best known in the Great Lakes Basin, and North America more generally, having played an active role in providing technical assistance in pollution prevention to industries located within the state since the mid-1980s.
In fact, MnTAP got a significant boost from the 1990 Minnesota Toxic Pollution Prevention Act, which emphasizes the prevalence of cross-media transfers from pollution control efforts as a central reason for pursuing cross-media integration and pollution prevention with unprecedented vigor.
The initial increase in funding has enabled MnTAP to more than double its staff, making possible considerable state technical support for industries as they devise and implement their toxic pollution prevention plans.
