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 hazardous waste but who lack the expertise to do so. Waste Minimization Assessment Centers (WMACs) were established at selected universities and procedures were adapted from the EPA Waste Minimization Opportunity Assessment Manual (EPA/625/7-88/003, July 1988). The WMAC team at the University of Louisville performed an assessment at a plant manufacturing aluminum extrusions--over 10 million lb/yr. Aluminum parts are extruded and tempered followed by electrostatic painting, anodizing, or shipping. The team's report, detailing findings and recommendations, indicated that the most waste was generated by the painting process and that the greatest savings could be obtained by replacing the currently used paints with electrostatic powder coatings.
