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. Waste Minimization Assessment Centers (WMACs) were established at selected universities and procedures were adapted from the EPA Waste Minimization Opportunity Assessment Manual (EPA/625/7-88/003, July 1988). The WMAC team at the University of Tennessee performed an assessment at a plant manufacturing permanent-magnet DC electric motors-approximately 12 million motors and repair parts per yr. The armatures and stators are manufactured separately and then assembled into complete motor units. The team's report, indicated that the majority of waste was generated in the armature assembly line but that the greatest savings could be obtained by installing an electrostatic powder coating system to reduce the generation of waste paint solids (93%) and to eliminate the generation of waste paint liquids.
