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 hazardous 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 Colorado State University performed an assessment at a plant that manufactures metal bands, clamps, retainers, and tooling--approximately 2 million lb/yr of product. Metal undergoes cutting, machining, cleaning, and electroplating as required. The specific processes are determined by the particular product being produced. The team's report, detailing findings and recommendations, indicated the most waste was generated by metal cleaning and that the greatest cost savings would result from using deionized water instead of tap water to make up and maintain the reagent baths in the metal cleaning and electroplating lines.
