GLRPPR Sector Resource: Motor Vehicle Equipment Company P2 Case Study

Title:
Motor Vehicle Equipment Company P2 Case Study

Abstract:
The Indiana Pollution Prevention and Safe Materials Institute (IPPI) (now the Clean Manufacturing Technology and Safe Materials Institute, CMTI) worked with a large manufacturer of motor vehicle freight equipment to analyze areas within the company where hazardous chemical use and emissions could be reduced or eliminated. The project developed around the company's use of sealants and caulks, which are used to waterproof seams and joints of freight hauling equipment.
