Abstract:QMA, Inc. is located in Elk Grove Village, IL. The company makes printed wiring boards (PWBs) and employs about 40 people. QMA wanted to reduce the cost of disposing of its wastewater which was being hauled off site. The company also wanted to improve the safety of its workers by eliminating 3,000 gallons of highly acidic wastewater, which had to be stored in the plant while awaiting disposal. QMA company officials attended a workshop presented by ISTC for the printed wiring board sector and asked ISTC for assistance.
