GLRPPR Sector Resource: Managing Solvents and Wipes

Managing Solvents and Wipes

This is the first in a series of case studies that EPA is developing to illustrate the Design for the Environment (DfE) theme. This study describes a successful pollution reduction program at the John Roberts Company in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Although the company did not have access to risk and impact information, the way in which it searched out safer alternatives illustrates how printers can achieve significant environmental results.
