The WMAC team at the University of Tennessee performed an assessment at a plant that manufactures paper rolls, ink rolls, ink ribbons, and magnetic and thermal transfer ribbon. The assessment team's report, detailing findings and recommendations, indicated that the plant generates a great deal of hazardous waste in the coating operations of the magnetic and thermal transfer ribbon production and in the clean-up of production equipment. The greatest cost saving opportunity recommended to the plant involved the reuse of tracer ribbon in the ink ribbon production line in order to reduce raw material purchase costs.
