CSP teamed with the Silicon Valley Leadership Group (SVLG) and the Santa
Clara County P2 Program to launch a pilot program for Silicon Valley manufacturers
to reduce chemical use and waste in Silicon Valley. The pilot introduced
a chemical management services (CMS) to cut costs
and optimize chemical use in manufacturing.
Four companies used this opportunity to partner with CSP as part of this
pilot program: Seagate Technology, Analog Devices, Stanford Linear
Accelerator Center, and Nu-Metal Finishing. Each of these companies committed to evaluate
the feasibility of a CMS program with a focus on chemical use reduction
CSP, the Silicon Valley Manufacturing Group (SVMG), and the Santa Clara
County Pollution Prevention Program hosted a CMS Workshop on March 12, 2002
at Philips Electronics' facility in Sunnyvale, CA. The workshop brought
together representatives from a variety of organizations to hear presentations
and engage in discussions about the chemical management services (CMS) model
and, more broadly, the Silicon Valley Pilot Program. A total of 46 people
from 28 different organizations attended this workshop, which featured case
study presentations from the four participants in the Silicon Valley Pilot
Program: Analog Devices, Seagate Technology, Stanford Linear Accelerator
Center, and Nu-Metal Finishing. United Technologies Corporation also gave
a presentation detailing their efforts to implement a global CMS program.
Thank you to all the participants for making this workshop a success!
