California Plastics Industry Hazardous Waste Source Reduction Assessment 2006 Reporting Year
NEW! (Completed) This assessment report (Document 551, 129 pages) focuses on hazardous wastes generated by the manufacture of plastic products in California. The report presents the assessment of source reduction by 43 companies in the state, covering plastic materials and resins (SIC 2821), plastic bottles (SIC 3085), plastic foam products (SIC 3086), custom compounding of purchased plastic resins (SIC 3087), and plastic products not elsewhere classified (SIC 3089). The assessment includes efforts to significantly reduce hazardous waste generation from 2002 to 2010 and summarizes future plans by the industry to reduce hazardous waste.


Metal Finishing Industry Assessment Report
NEW! OPPGT is preparing an assessment of the metal finishing and metal plating industry efforts to reduce hazardous waste generation. The resulting assessment report will focus on and profile approximately 25 to 30 of the large-quantity generators captured by SB 14 and listed under Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) 3741. The assessment will profile selected individual facilities, identify major waste streams, and summarize hazardous waste source reduction accomplishments from 2002 to 2006. The assessment will also quantify projections for further reducing these major waste streams from 2006 to 2010. The reports should be available in the spring of 2009. For more information, contact Robert Gipson at (916) 324-3124 or Kim Wilhelm at (916) 324-6649.


California Pharmaceutical Industry Hazardous Waste Source Reduction 2002 Assessment Report
(Completed) This assessment report (Document 550, 110 pages) focuses on hazardous wastes generated by the manufacture of pharmaceutical products in California. The report presents the first DTSC assessment of source reduction by 27 prominent pharmaceutical processing plants in the state. The assessment includes efforts to significantly reduce hazardous waste generation from 1999 to 2006 and summarizes future plans by the industry to reduce hazardous waste. The manufacturing operations include the extraction, processing, purification and packaging of chemical materials to be used as medications for humans or animals. Each of these production steps may generate air emissions, liquid effluents and solid wastes.


California Petroleum Refinery Hazardous Waste Source Reduction 2002 Assessment Report
(Completed) This assessment report (Document 547, 138 pages) presents DTSC's fourth assessment of California's 17 largest refineries' efforts to significantly reduce hazardous waste generation from 1998 through 2002. The assessment also summarizes the California refinery industry's future plans to reduce hazardous waste, primarily through source reduction approaches from 2002-2006.


California Petroleum Refinery Hazardous Waste Source Reduction 1998 Assessment Report
(Completed) This assessment report (Document 544, 109 pages) presents DTSC's third assessment of California's 17 largest refineries' efforts toward significant reductions of their hazardous waste from 1994 through 1998.


Hazardous Waste Source Reduction Assessment of Selected Sectors of the California Chemical Industry
(Completed) This assessment report (Document 545, 125 pages) reviews the hazardous waste source reduction efforts of 22 facilities within selected chemical industry SIC codes, which include generally non-specialty product chemical manufacturing as well as agricultural chemicals.


California Semiconductor Industry Hazardous Waste Source Reduction Assessment Report

(Completed) This assessment report (Document 549, 89 pages) summarizes the results of DTSC's assessment of the semiconductor industry's source reduction efforts based on review of selected companies' 1998 and 2002 SB 14 source reduction documents.


Listed below are industry-specific assessments of hazardous waste source reduction undertaken by DTSC for the SB 14 program. As indicated on the listing, some are completed and currently available online for reference by generators. These assessments describe successful source reduction technology implemented by specific industry sectors in California. The technology is applicable to generators in the specified industry, or in other industries, for planning SB 14 hazardous waste source reduction programs.
