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 waste but who lack the expertise to do so. The Waste Minimization Assessment Centers (WMACs) team at Colorado State University performed an assessment at a plant that manufactures aerial manlifts, ventilating driers, and air driers. The teams's report, detailing findings and recommendations, indicated that the waste streams generated in the greatest quantity are spent rinse waters from plating and paint preparation, and the greatest cost savings could be achieved by replacing the currently used parts washer with a system that uses a less hazardous solvent.
