CASE STUDY − WASTE REDUCTION

 

CHALLENGES


 

A major automotive brake parts manufacturer needed to implement a plan that would help them reduce waste-related costs. The plant processed over one million gallons of fluid per year, and knew that they had to do something. Areas that needed to be examined included:

  • Recycling chemistry of the coolants & lubricants
  • Chemical segregation of the fluids used in the plant
  • Chemical and bacterial control
  • The current recycling system

 

THE SOLUTION


 

Quaker′s management team implemented a waste reduction program that has saved the customer an estimated $1,500,000 since its inception. The average annual volume of waste reduced is almost 900,000 gallons or 7.5 million pounds.
