Presentation Outline
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Sustainable Manufacturing and Green Chemistry Why We Have this Initiative Current Projects Recent and Upcoming Work Company Examples Selected Programs and Resources

Manufacturing and Services (MAS) � One of the four sections of the International Trade Administration � Primary liaison with U.S. industry with a goal of enhancing U.S. competitiveness � Offices organized by industry sector � Federal Government's chief advocate for the manufacturing and services sectors across policy areas (regulations, trade, etc.)

Sustainable Manufacturing and Green Chemistry
Our Definition of Sustainable Manufacturing: 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. Principles of green chemistry are compatible with sustainable manufacturing �Prevent rather than treat �Material efficiency �Non-hazardous/non-toxic �Energy efficiency �Renewable materials �Design for End-of-life Green chemistry is necessary for other sustainable manufacturing innovations �Nylon 6 �UV Coatings Can be critical to competitive advantage
9

Industry and Sustainability
Sustainability is a key competitiveness issue for U.S. manufacturers.

1) Creation of an Interagency Working Group on Sustainable Manufacturing
� Department of Commerce (DOC) � International Trade Administration (ITA) � National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) � Economic Development Administration (EDA) Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Department of Energy (DOE) Department of Labor (DOL) U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � Department of the Treasury Department of State Department of Justice (DOJ) Department of Defense (DOD) Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Department of Education Small Business Administration (SBA) Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Federal Trade Commission (FTC) National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Project #2: Sustainable Business Clearinghouse
� Need for central portal of programs/resources across government agencies � Searchable based on issue, industry, and type of information � More than 800 sites in database. Has been expanded to include state resources. � Online now @ www.manufacturing.gov/ sustainability
12

Project #3: Sustainable Manufacturing American Regional Tours - "SMARTs"
� Goal: To raise awareness of the benefits of sustainable manufacturing and other business practices � Entails Commerce-led tours of facilities of national and local sustainability leaders � Closes the "familiarity gap" � show companies what "going green" entails � Connects businesses with federal, state and local resources
13

SMARTs 2008-2010
Over 200 companies have attended one of these tours; co-host with other federal agencies or local partners and focus on specific issues (i.e. supply chains, industry sectors, jobs, etc).
� St. Louis, MO � Grand Rapids, MI � Rochester, NY � Seattle, WA � Columbus, OH � Atlanta, GA � Beltsville, MD
14

4) Metrics for Sustainable Manufacturing
� Need for an internationally accepted, simplified set of metrics that companies of any size can use to measure their progress and compare themselves to others Will provide guidance for using the results to set sustainability priorities Phase 1 complete; Phase 2 in progress with goal of producing a "toolkit" in 2010 Strong support from U.S. industry; essential OECD maintains momentum to complete this on time

Sustainable Manufacturing and Green Chemistry Examples
Shaw Floors � Won 2003 Presidential Green Chemistry Award for EcoWorx carpet tile- less toxic, easier to recycle � Carpet take back programs � Other examples of sustainable practices: waste to energy, water recycling, continuous dyeing, dye bath reuse, used cooking oil for conversion to biodiesel to power boilers. 3M � Pollution Prevention Pays program � elimination of more than 3 billion pounds of pollution and saved company nearly $1.4 billion � Use of Lean Six Sigma � replaced the solvent-based paper treatment process used to manufacture packaging, medical, and masking tapes with a new, water-based process � eliminated 45 tons of solvent emissions, no need for pollution prevention equipment. Terra Nitrogen Company, L.P. � Received a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Save Energy Now assessment � Upgrades to plant's steam system. � Aggregate annual energy and cost savings are approximately 497,000 MMBtu and more than $3.5 million. With project costs of around $3.1 million.
