Abstract
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 manufactures commercial refrigeration units. The manufacturing operations include design, metal working, metal finishing, and blowing of polyethylene foam into panel jacketing for insulation purposes. A site visit was made in 1990 during which several opportunities for waste minimization were identified. Options identified included new techniques to reduce CFC emissions from foam manufacture, new foam production cleaning techniques to reduce methylene chloride usage, improved painting techniques to reduce VOC emissions and reduction of solvent wastes from general cleaning procedures. 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.
