2012 Case Study: CST Storage

With increasing production, CST Storage has focused on improving its processes as much as possible with pollution prevention and waste reduction techniques. The intern this year, Michael Claussen, researched solutions for several projects, including cardboard recycling, filter replacement schedules, compressed-air leaks, electricity conservation, washer chemical replacement, pump replacement in the powder coat booth, using a variable frequency drive in the paint booths, and painter training programs. His recommended solutions projected an annual environmental impact reduction to be 271,814 kWh of electricity and 86 tons of solid waste, which is equivalent to $109,179 of savings annually.
