Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS)
Abstract: CCPS and its sponsor companies are committed to protecting employees, communities, and the environment by developing engineering and management practices to prevent or mitigate catastrophic releases of chemicals, hydrocarbons, and other hazardous materials. The organization?s web site includes several tools, databases and over 80 books and other publications to help improve the safety of chemical processes.

Design for the Environment (DfE) Computer Display Partnership
Abstract: The DfE Computer Display Partnership, along with the electronics industry, evaluated the life-cycle environmental impacts, performance, and cost of technologies that are used in desktop computer monitors?namely, cathode ray tubes (CRT) and liquid crystal displays (LCD). This project generated data to assist original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers in the electronics field in incorporating environmental considerations into their decision-making processes and identify areas for improvement. This project combined both the Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA) and the Cleaner Technologies Substitutes Assessment (CTSA) approaches to analyze the environmental impacts, performance, and cost of both CRT and LCD desktop monitors.

Design for the Environment (DfE) Gravure Printing Partnership
Abstract: The DfE Gravure Printing Partnership was formed to identify common environmental issues for small- and medium-size printers in the packaging and product sectors and to encourage printers and product sectors to address these issues by reducing risk and preventing pollution.

Design for the Environment (DfE) Lithographic Printing Partnership
Abstract: The goals of the DfE Lithographic Printing Partnership are to help the nation's 54,000 lithographic printing shops: incorporate environmental consideration into business decisions; and switch to blanket washes that contain fewer volatile organic compounds (VOCs), lower vapor pressure, and fewer hazardous chemicals, where appropriate.

Design for the Environment (DfE) Printed Wiring Board Partnership
Abstract: Traditional methods for manufacturing PWBs use toxic chemicals, such as formaldehyde, that pose potential health and environmental risks, use substantial amounts of water and energy, and generate large volumes of hazardous waste. The DfE Program partners, including the national PWB trade association, have examined alternative technologies that reduce or eliminate these impacts.

Design for the Environment (DfE) Screen Printing Partnership
Abstract: The DfE Screen Printing Partnership encourages screen printers to consider environmental and worker safety concerns along with cost and performance factors when purchasing materials and designing systems.
