Imaging Products Laboratory
Sustainable Manufacturing, as defined by the U.S. Department of Commerce, is the creation of manufactured products that use processes that minimize negative environmental impacts, conserve energy and natural resources, are safe for employees, communities, and consumers and are economically sound. Experienced IPL staff can help incorporate sustainable design and production practices early in the design cycle to maximize the economic and environmental product benefit.
IPL can assist with sustainable design practices and tools to minimize a product’s environmental impact throughout the product’s life cycle.
IPL can perform independent assessments to evaluate the potential for reduced process waste and increase resource recovery in typical production operations and facilities.
