The Waste Minimization Assessment Center (WMAC) team at Colorado State University performed an assessment at a plant that manufactures surgical implants from stainless steel and titanium stock. The metal stock is machined, vibratory polished, electropolished, passivated, inspected, and shipped. The team's report, detailing findings and recommendations, indicated that wastewater and waste cutting fluid are the wastes generated in the greatest quantities and that significant cost savings would result from implementing a formal cutting fluid management plan.
