Who We Are

Enterprise Services offers a wide range of services to current and prospective Arkansas businesses, and other entities, in need of assistance with environmental permits and regulatory questions.

Acting as a liaison between permit applicants and E&E's regulatory offices, our goal is to make the permitting process easier for small and prospective businesses. Staff help identify measures to reduce waste, improve energy efficiency, save money, and increase business performance.

Lucy Cross

Associate Director, Enterprise Services

"We help Arkansas businesses understand their permits and act in accordance with existing environmental regulations. We also work with the Arkansas Economic Development Commission and other partners to support responsible economic development and create jobs for Arkansans. Our office administers the Small Business Environmental Assistance Program (SBEAP), the Recycling Equipment Tax Credit Program, and the Natural State Environmental Program (NStEP)."

AR Will Benefit from Increased Demand for Lithium

AR Will Benefit from Increased Demand for Lithium

The fascination with Arkansas’s diamond mines soon may be matched with interest in its bromine brines. A state-of-the-art facility is already extracting lithium—a critical mineral for the production of batteries and electronics—from bromine brines produced from the Jurassic Smackover Formation.
