The Washington Applied Sustainability Internship (WASI) program is a summer internship program designed to link dedicated engineering, chemistry, sustainability and environmental sciences students with business and industry in Washington. Interns research identified pollution prevention opportunities at a Host Business to analyze, recommend, and/or implement process changes to find and use safer chemical alternatives, reduce hazardous and solid wastes, conserve energy and water, reduce water contaminants and emissions, increase efficiency and cost savings, and improve employee health and safety. These pollution prevention internship projects will benefit Washington’s waterways and other natural resources.
Washington Sea Grant (WSG) and the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) administer the program in tandem. Individual Interns work for a Host Business and will have access to technical advisors at Ecology. The program is partially funded by the EPA Pollution Prevention Grant.
