GLRPPR Sector Resource: Achieving Pollution Prevention Success: Painting and Coating Processes Economy, Energy, and Environment Project

Title:
Achieving Pollution Prevention Success: Painting and Coating Processes Economy, Energy, and Environment Project

Abstract:
Partially funded by a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Pollution Prevention (P2) grant, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, in partnership with the Minnesota Technical Assistance Program (MnTAP) at the University of Minnesota, and LEAN assistance providers, conducted an Economy, Energy, and Environment (E3) pilot to provide direct technical assistance on painting and coating processes used in manufacturing. The goal of the project was to achieve natural resource (water and materials) reductions, time, motion and energy efficiencies, and cost savings at Minnesota manufacturing facilities. In addition to working with manufacturers engaged in painting and coating processes, the grantee also worked with the manufacturers' supply chains. E3 assessments that focused on environmental, energy efficiency and LEAN improvements were provided at three facilities. The grantee and project partners also provided follow up support to the companies participating in the pilot to encourage implementation of the E3 assessment recommendations and measure the environmental and economic benefits the facilities' achieved as a result of the implementation.
