DfE Pollution Prevention Case Studies

Journal of Environmental Health, June 1997 | Go to article overview

DfE Pollution Prevention Case Studies


The following case studies were developed by the U.S. EPA OPPT Design for the Environment Program. These are only two examples of the many excellent case studies developed and published by the DfE Program. The order form for these and other DfE case studies and materials was published in the May 1997 issue of the Journal of Environmental Health.

These case studies describe a number of practices that many manufacturers have found prevent pollution and reduce employees' exposures to chemicals in their shops. These techniques may also reduce the total cost of your process (which includes equipment, labor, and waste disposal and compliance costs) with minimal capital expenditures.

The EPA's Design for the Environment Program encourages you to evaluate systematically the technologies, practices, and procedures in your facility that may impact the environment.

EPA's DfE Program would like to receive feedback on the effectiveness of these case studies. If you successfully implement one or more of these pollution prevention ideas and would like to provide feedback to EPA, please send a brief description of your pollution prevention initiatives (or ideas for inclusion in future case studies) to the Design for the Environment Program, U.S. EPA (7406), 401 M St., SW, Washington, DC, 20460 or fax: (202) 260-0981

HOW DID THE DfE PRINTING PROJECT GET STARTED?

DfE began working with the printing industry in 1992, when the Printers Industries of America (PIA) requested EPA's assistance in evaluating environmental claims for products. This effort ultimately grew into projects with three separate sectors of the printing industry: lithography, flexography, and screen printing. Each project addresses a different area of environmental concern: for flexography the focus is on the types of inks used; for screen printing the focus is on screen reclamation; and for lithography the project partners chose to look at blanket washes.
