Example text

The study approach is to identify and analyze the major activities, employed throughout California industries, that are responsible for most of the metal bearing wastes generated. By studying and understanding these activities, effective waste reduction strategies can be formulated. 0, in which the industries mentioned in Table 2-1 are examined, and the activities that produce wastes are identified. 1 REGULATORY TRENDS The 1984 Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA) to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) imposed new responsibilities on those who manage hazardous wastes.

Finally, vanadium is used in scrubbing solutions for the removal of hydrogen sulfide from natural gas. Poor vanadium recovery can result in a hazardous metal-bearing waste. 8 INDUSTRIAL MACHINERY (SIC 35) Industrial machinery manufacturing includes production of engines, turbines, farm construction, mining, and materials handling equipment, metalworking machinery and refrigeration equipment. Vanadium is used in dies and high speed tools to increase high temperature abrasion resistance, and in crankshafts and gears to add shock and wear resistance.

Waste reduction is generally accompanied by process efficiency improvements and cost reductions. Nevertheless, the company's capital resources may be tied up elsewhere. It is essential to know the level within an organization that has approval authority for capital projects, and to have a team that can present the financial, technical and environmental benefits in such a manner as to sell the project to management. 4 THE WASTE MINIMIZATION OPPORTUNI1Y ASSESSMENT In order to aid companies and other organizations in creating effective waste minimization programs, the Environmental Protection Agency has developed a recommended procedure for identifying and implementing source reduction and recycling applications that includes the steps discussed in the previous section.
