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. The Waste Minimization Assessment Centers (WMACs) team at the University of Tennessee performed an assessment at a plant that manufactures felt tip markers, stamp pads, and rubber cement. The team's report, detailing findings and recommendations, indicated that a large quantity of scrap plastic is generated by the injection molding of markers and stamp pad cases, and that significant cost savings could be achieved by segregating scrap plastic and reusing it in subsequent production runs.
