Description:

This report summarizes work conducted at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Langley Research Center (NASA-LaRC) in Hampton, VA, under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Waste Reduction Evaluations at Federal Sites (WREAFS) Program. Support for this study was provided by the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP). SERDP is a cooperative effort between DoD, DOE and EPA to develop environmental solutions that enhance mission readiness in defense operations. The purposes of the WREAFS Program are to identify new technologies and techniques for reducing wastes from process operations and other activities at Federal sites, and to enhance the implementation of pollution prevention/waste minimization through technology transfer. New techniques and technologies for reducing waste generation are identified through waste minimization opportunity assessments and may be further evaluated through joint research, development, and demonstration projects. Under the Chesapeake Bay Agreement, NASA-LaRC is a member of the Tidewater Interagency Pollution Prevention Program (TIPPP). At NASA-LaRC, a technique for producing advanced composite materials without the use of solvents has been developed. This assessment was focused on the production of non-refractory composite materials and aircraft structures made from those materials.
