View Manufacturing Chemicals as a Necessary Evil?
Understanding environmental net impact calls for a new perspective
Employing chemicals in any manufacturing or cleaning process results in waste and environmental risks. But not using them would mean taking a step backward: using more water, more heat and energy, lower production yields, more labor and more contamination risks. In this paper, we outline how using the right environmentally friendly industrial chemicals in the right manner can have a net-positive impact on the environment.
Discover Six Ways to Balance Net Impact
Quantify and Measure Objectives
Are you over-applying chemicals in hopes of getting “better” results?
Scrutinize Chemistry Selection
Could small changes allow you to switch to less harmful chemicals?
Standardize Work Processes
When is “more” not necessarily “better” in your operations?
Review Knock-Down Impacts
Look for incremental process changes that could greatly improve results.
Automate and Document
Assessing chemical use can lead to reduced waste and lowered operating costs.
Adopt Continuous Process Improvement
Where can you squeeze out a competitive advantage?
