Description:The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), Environmental Science and Service Division awarded two Pollution Prevention Incentives for States Grants for Health Care Pollution Prevention Technology Demonstration Projects in FY 1999. Both grant projects focused on reducing hazardous and solid waste; environmentally sound products/services; mercury reductions; healthy building design and construction, using recycle, reuse, and/or recover principles; and the preparation of a comprehensive survey of Michigan hospitals have adopted pollution prevention practices. These results provided valuable information on measurable reductions in waste generation and energy usage, as well as improve process efficiency.

Healthcare Support Services, LLC has partnered with Foote Health Systems in Jackson, Michigan and has received a matching funds grant to recycle spent xylene, alcohol, and methanol using the "Procycler Plus, Model 88", by B/R Instrument Corporation for use at Foote Hospital. Currently, liquid waste is removed by a hazardous waste hauler, and sent off-site for destruction. The project was to determine the quality of recyclables for reuse in their current laboratory or other similar facility uses, without causing any loss of quality control.
