Title:
NY State Governor’s P2 Awards Success Story: Eastman Kodak Company

Abstract:
The Kodak Park facility, Rochester, New York, is a large, integrated manufacturing plant producing photographic films, papers and processing chemicals. The pollution prevention program initiated by the Synthetic Chemicals Division systematically drives for source reduction through process redesign, increased recovery of solvents and decreased dependency on solvents in cleaning operations. Each process is analyzed for the amount of waste generated per unit of product produced. This data is then used to set annual goals for the reduction of process waste.
