Adhesives Technology Milestones
September 15, 1998:
Convened and Assembled Stakeholders Group.
Identified and Selected Substitutes for Evaluation. All potential substitutes for the target industries were identified. The stakeholders group decided which specific technologies will be the focus of the project and established the baseline and boundaries of the evaluation.
Distribute Early Information Products. Developed documents that are useful to small and medium-sized manufacturers, including detailed case studies of firms using the new and emerging technologies and the results of the tests and performance demonstrations.
Substitute Conference. The conference was held in southern California and included demonstrations of the new technologies.
Complete CTSA. Compiled a comparative analysis of the different technologies available in each of the focus areas of this project. The CTSA evaluated and compared the performance, cost, and health and environmental impacts of the various formulations and technologies. This analysis included an exposure and risk assessment to the workers and the surrounding community.
