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 laminates paper and cardboard substrates which are used for packaging purposes. The lamination is accomplished by application of a liquid laminate to the surface of the substrate followed by curing. The facility also applies metallic coatings to similar substrates by transfer from mylar films. A site visit was made in 1990 during which several opportunities for waste minimization were identified. Options identified included changing to UV curing for laminates and on-site distillation and reuse for solvent. Implementation of the identified waste minimization opportunities was not part of the program. Percent waste reduction, net annual savings, implementation costs and payback periods were estimated.
