Abstract:

USAF is concerned about the use of toxic processing at the A ir Logistics Centers ALCs. To reduce hazardous waste generation from cadmium electroplating, McDonnell Aircraft Division MCAIR of McDonnell Douglas, through EGg Idaho, was requested to determine the feasibility of substituting ion vapor deposition IVD of aluminum, across the board, for cadmium electroplating processes. The IVD aluminum coating and process does not generate hazardous wastes. The current phase of this contract required technical, environmental, and economical comparisons between IVD of aluminum and cadmium electroplating. This report provides that information. Recommended research and development to be conducted in Phase II of the contract is also included. Keywords Cyanides Hazardous waste minimization Ion vapor deposition. edc
