Title:
Indiana: Jupiter Coil Coating Division Jupiter Aluminum Corp. P2 Case Study

Abstract:
Jupiter Coil Coating Division (Jupiter) initiated a project with the Indiana Clean Manufacturing Technology and Safe Materials Institute (CMTI) to identify methods to reduce or eliminate the need to replace their cleaning solution on a monthly basis. Jupiter also wanted to assure that their water effluent met their National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit limits with the ultimate goal of zero water discharge. Eliminating the need to replace the cleaning solution on a monthly basis will save time and money as well as reduce the use of chemicals used in the process. Meeting the NPDES permit limits, or eliminating the effluent entirely, will eliminate the risk of violations and possible fines levied by The Indiana Department of Environmental Management or EPA.
