Abstract
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has funded a pilot project to assist small and medium-size manufacturers who want to mimize 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 a variety of steel and aluminum parts. The team's report, detailing findings and recommendations, indicated that the waste streams generated in greatest quantity are rinse water and paint wastes, and that the greatest cost savings could be achieved by replacing the conventional paint guns currently used with more efficient substitutes.
