The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA )has chosen Tonawanda, New York to implement, the new e3 program, which stands for economy, energy, and environment. Companies in the area are offered incentives for companies to develop internal programs designed to clean up the environment. Tonawanda has 53 factories within a two-mile radius that pollute the air with known cancer-causing agents like benzene and formaldehyde. The e3 program will work with the companies that are known polluters to offer preferred financing and expertise from government engineers in exchange for greening up, which could result in a better corporate image and better profits.
