CMS in Universities and Research Institutions
In 2002, CSP received funding from the US EPA, Office of Solid Waste to benchmark current practices and evaluate the viability of external, chemical management companies to assist colleges and universities in chemical management. This project provided critical information on chemical management alternatives for educational and research institutions and the capabilities of external CMS providers to meet their needs.

CMS and Resource Management in K-12 School Districts
In February 2005, CSP and the US EPA Office of Solid Waste launched a pilot project with the Lansing, Michigan school district to explore the viability of CMS and Resource Management (RM) in K-12 school districts. The goal is to introduce CMS and RM as a combined strategy to better manage legacy hazardous waste and future chemical use, promote a healthy school environment that enhances learning, and reduce school operating costs. Additional support for the project is provided by General Motors.

Silicon Valley Pilot Program
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. CSP worked with four companies, Seagate Technology, Analog Devices, Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC), and Nu-Metal Finishing to initiate a CMS program at their facility(ies) in Silicon Valley.

Western Pennsylvania CMS Coalition
CSP's objective in initiating the Western Pennsylvania Chemical Management Service (CMS) Coalition was to test the CMS model in small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) in the Pittsburgh region. We took an umbrella, "shared use" approach in order to achieve the economies of scale of
a large company and attract a chemical service provider.

Raytheon Company
Raytheon's Chemical & Gas Management Program (CGMP) began in May 1999 and has been yielding impressive results.

Nortel Networks
CSP worked with a Nortel semiconductor facility near Ottawa, Canada to initiate a CMS program. The program began in 1997 as an attempt to reduce chemical consumption and improve process efficiency by taking a "shared savings" approach to working with a chemical supplier.

For more information on this pilot program, read "Nortel: Shared Savings for Chemical and Waste Reduction", an article published by The ENDS Report.
