Antea Group is proud to be a participant in MnTap, which has been coordinating an intern program placing highly qualified students in facilities for over 30 years. The program began as a way to facilitate pollution prevention solutions and to provide benefits to both companies and students.

According to MnTap, “Our group of talented and industrious interns identified environmental reductions that could save their companies $1,028,130 annually as well as 1,727,665 pounds of waste, 868,875 million kWh and 152,044 therms of energy, and over 45 million gallons of water per year! These results translate into real environmental impacts equivalent to eliminating CO2 emissions from 170 passenger vehicles and waste equal to the weight of approximately 17 metro transit light rail cars. The proposed reductions also equal the energy used to power 91 Minnesota homes and the water used by 1,905 Minneapolis residents.”

Antea Group intern Ross Wise focused on creating sustainability manuals for the Brewers Association, a non-profit association with over 2,700 member breweries and 45,000 member homebrewers. Ross helped to collect data on water, natural gas, energy, and CO2 usage for 25 breweries, and used that information to develop best practices and find potential cost savings.
