Contents Notes
"To promote waste minimization activities in accordance with the national policy objectives established under the 1984 Hazardous and Solid-Waste Amendments to the Resource Conservatism and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA), the Hazardous Waste Engineering Research Laboratory (HWERL) of the USEPA Office of Research and Development has undertaken a project to develop and test a waste minimization (WM) audit procedure. As part of this project, a total of 6 WM audits were carried out in four separate facilities. This report presents the results of the on-site WM audits performed at two electroplating facilities that generate cyanide-beating, wastes. Thar report also describes the WM audit procedure as it has-developed from the initial (pre-project) sequence of steps, to the modified (post-project) sequence that reflects the experience gained during this HWERL project."
