The WMAC team at Colorado State University performed an assessment at a plant that applies corrosion resistant coatings to metal parts. The assessment team's report, detailing findings and recommendations, indicated that large quantities of wastewater and metal sludge are generated by the plant and that significant cost savings could be achieved through replacement of Freon used for degreasing.
