The Environmental Impact of Industrial Fluid Waste and Reducing Fluid for More Sustainable ManufacturingApril 25th, 2023 by Nicole Kelly
The use of fluids in metal stamping and machining operations is necessary, but with their use comes the corporate responsibility to collect and dispose of fluid waste properly. Used metalworking fluids become contaminated with oils, fines, metals, bacteria, etc. These fluids require treatment before disposal to meet local, state, and federal laws, and even then, there are still environmental impacts associated with transportation and proper disposal. Not to mention the cost.
The best way to reduce environmental impact is to reduce industrial fluid usage. Adopting sustainable fluid management practices can reduce costs and help companies meet regulatory requirements and certifications, like ISO 14001, enhance their reputation, and increase their competitiveness in the marketplace.
