The guide identifies and analyzes waste minimization methodologies appropriate for the printed circuit board manufacturing industry. The wastes resulting from printed circuit board manufacturing are associated with five types of processes: cleaning and surface preparation; catalyst application and electroless plating; pattern printing and masking; electroplating; and etching. The wastes themselves include airborne particulates, spent acids and alkaline solutions, spent solvents, spent plating baths, waste rinsewater, and other wastes. The guide also presents a set of detailed waste minimization assessment worksheets suitable for use by shop managers and engineers, or by outside consultants, to formulate a waste minimization strategy for the particular plant. Finally, case histories of waste minimization assessments performed at three plants are given.
