Abstract

The goal of the project was to reduce Nypro's impact on the environment by facilitating the company's recent "Reduce-Reuse-Recycle" initiative. Through multiple site visits, extensive interviews, and process analyses, the project team identified numerous internal opportunities within Nypro facilities in China as well as the external ones from selected Nypro suppliers. The effects of the opportunities with the highest interests are then evaluated by monetary savings and the amount of reduction in carbon emissions and waste materials.
