Case Study Highlights P2 Success

Organization(s) Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description A spring manufacturer has been highlighted in the latest pollution prevention case study produced by CT DEP. The business was able to change its hazardous waste status from a Large Quantity Generator (LQG) to a Small Quantity Generator (SQG) by dramatically reducing its use of tetrachloroethylene. The success was due in part to an SEP that the company was able to negotiate to purchase a more sophisticated parts degreasing system. Copies of the case study are available.
