GLRPPR Sector Resource: Zero Process Water Discharge for a Two-stage Washer--Ace Plating, Part IV

Title:
Zero Process Water Discharge for a Two-stage Washer--Ace Plating, Part IV

Abstract:
In 1995, with the Illinois Waste Management and Research Center's (WMRC) assistance, the management at Ace Plating, a small Chicago job shop offering a variety of decorative electroplating finishes, launched an aggressive effort to use environmentally responsible practices and procedures in all of its business operations. By October 2000, Ace had become a zero process water discharger. This factsheet outlines the joint effort of WMRC and Ace to minimize the amount of water discharged from a two-stage washer that is part of a powder-coating system used by Ace. (Length: 2 pages)
