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 an electrical utility transmission system monitoring and maintenance facility which has the responsibility to monitor, maintain, and repair the distribution system for the electrical service provided in a defined geographical area by a regulated public utility. A site visit was made in 1990 during which several opportunities for waste minimization were identified. Options identified for waste reduction included more accessible inventory records to determine which transformers may contain PCB's to reduce the quantity of oil listed as PCB-containing, changing procedures for vehicle oil changes, a search for alternatives for electrical connection degreasing, and change to low-solvent or water-based coatings for transformer reconditioning. 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.
