Abstract 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 Colorado State University performed an assessment for a plant that produces equipment for manufacturing and decorating aluminum beverage cans. Each component manufactured undergoes a unique series of operations including cutting, machining, welding, and painting. The team's report, detailing findings and recommendations, indicated that spent cutting fluid and contaminated hydraulic fluid are the largest wastes generated by the plant and that significant savings could result from instituting a recycling program for the waste cutting fluid.
