The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) funded a project with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and Energy (NJDEPE) to assist in conducting waste minimization assessments at thirty small- to medium-sized businesses in the state of New Jersey. One of the sites selected was a manufacturer of fine chemicals using batch processes. A site visit was made in 1990 during which several opportunities for waste minimization were identified. Options identified for waste reduction included initiation of solvent recycling or reconditioning for reuse and modifying the chemical reaction conditions to improve product quality and reduce the amount of reprocessing which has been necessary. Implementation of the identified waste minimization opportunities was not part of the program. Percent waste reduction, net annual savings, implementation costs and payback periods were estimated.
