Re: Chromate


Several of my clients in the printing industry eliminated chromium from
their operations in the late 1980s and early 1990s.  I would suggest looking
for the source of the chromium and seeing if it cannot be eliminated,
probably by substituting with a non-hazardous waste generating alternative.
