This document is an update to the National Metal Finishing Environmental R&D Plan (EPA/600/R-97/095), dated September 1997. Based upon the finding of this update, it is recommended that Nickel be included as a high priority R&D area. Technology Transfer and technical assistance resurfaced as an important item by representatives in the industry. Hexavalent Chromium, Cyanide, and Cadmium remained high priority R&D areas, but the emphasis is shifting from emission control and other end of pipe approaches to research, development and demonstration of alternative materials and pollution prevention. Chlorinated Solvents require more emphasis on demonstration of alternative materials and information transfer. Technology Verification Protocol continues to be a high priority. Recycling and Metals Recovery should be focused more on finding technologies that will be appropriate for small platers. Emissions and Risk Characterization R&D has progressed. Past R&D in this area focused on the development of a metal finishing risk assessment tool that will target reduction of risks to workers. The R&D need in this area is shifting to the development of a tool that not only will identify risks to workers and the environment but also will consider cost-effective pollution prevention solutions.
