Abstract
Many metal finishing facilities are small businesses which lack in-house expertise or resources to initiate waste minimization programs. In 1988 the Risk Reduction Engineering Laboratory began a pilot project with the University City Science Center to provide waste minimization assessments for small businesses at no out-of-pocket expense to the host facility. Several metal finishing operations were included among the plants visited. The results of waste minimization assessments at two of these plants are discussed. The recommended waste minimization options and the actual experience with implemented recommendations are presented.
