The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) funded a project with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and Energy (NJDEPE) to assist in conducting waste minimization assessments at thirty small- to medium-sized businesses in the state of New Jersey. One of the sites selected was a facility that manufactures plastic containers by injection molding. The manufacturing process involves melting of a plastic resin and injection of the melt into molds in the shape of the container to be manufactured. The cooled and solidified container is removed from the mold, the mold is cleaned with solvent when required and the injection process is repeated. A portion of the containers are also made by blow molding which involves use of compressed gas to move the resin melt onto the walls of the mold. The rest of the operation is similar. A site visit was made in 1990 during which several opportunities for waste minimization were identified.
