The guide provides an overview of the major metal finishing processes and operations that generate waste and presents options for minimizing waste generation through source reduction and recycling. A wide variety of processes are used in the metal finishing industry, including physical, chemical, and electrochemical processes. Metal finishing processes generate various waste streams, including contaminated plating baths, spent process baths, cleaners, rinse water, miscellaneous solid waste, solvents, and air emissions. Reducing the generation of this waste at the source or recycling the wastes on or off site will benefit the metal finishing industry by reducing raw material use, reducing disposal costs, and lowering the liabilities associated with waste disposal.
