Upcoming Seminars

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description The Intel Massachusetts semiconductor manufacturing facility in Hudson is currently producing Pentium® 4 microprocessors. Participants in a May 2004 workshop at their facility will learn how Intel implemented numerous water conservation projects through a team-oriented approach. These projects ranged from simple administrative modifications to Ultra Pure Water Recycle Systems and have resulted in an annual savings of over 50 million gallons of water. The seminar will demonstrate the importance of water conservation and reuse strategies for successful business growth and maintaining a competitive edge in the face of limited water and wastewater capacity. A tour of the facility will enable participants to gain a thorough understanding of the Ultra Pure Water Recycle system. While the focus of the seminar will be toward ultra pure water applications in semiconductor manufacturing, Intel's approach and concepts are transferable to other industries, such as printed circuit manufacturing.

The main focus of a MA OTA fall 2004 seminar will be to show how a union/management team-oriented approach has enabled Cranston Print Works, a textile printing facility, to achieve water savings not believed possible in the textile industry. The highlight of the seminar will be a guided tour of the facility, which will help participants gain a thorough understanding of the 25 plus water conservation projects that have been implemented. The collective result of these projects is an annual savings of 110 million gallons of water and close to $350,000 in wastewater and energy costs.

OTA, in partnership with Environmental Affair's Environmental Justice Program, is holding a Conference for Community Awareness of Clean and Green Manufacturing in September in Worcester to create community awareness about the latest innovations and opportunities for clean manufacturing methods. Participants will have the opportunity to see hands-on exhibits of environmentally-friendly manufacturing equipment, processes and products, and gain the tools to promote and establish clean manufacturing practices in their communities. To encourage statewide participation, free regional shuttle-bus transportation will be provided through a grant from the National Institutes of Health.
