The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has funded a pilot project to assist small and medium-size manufacturers who want to minimize their generation of waste but who lack the expertise to do so. The Waste Minimization Assessment Centers (WMACs) team at Colorado State University performed an assessment at a plant that manufactures latex and acrylic caulk. The assessment team's report, detailing findings and recommendations, indicated that the greatest quantity of waste was generated by cleaning of equipment. The greatest cost saving opportunity recommended to the plant involved using solvent recovery unit to recover water from waste cleaning water/caulk. The recovered water can be reused.
