Industrial pollution and related environmental damage are topics of great concern in the United States right now. The U.S. economy is the fifth largest in the world. It is also the world's leading manufacturer. Because of that, industry is accountable for nearly half of the nation's pollution.

The Concept of Green Manufacturing

Green manufacturing is a term used to describe manufacturing practices that do not harm the environment during any part of the manufacturing process. It emphasizes the use of processes that do not pollute the environment or harm consumers, employees, or other members of the community. Green manufacturing addresses a number of manufacturing matters, including recycling, conservation, waste management, water supply, environmental protection, regulatory compliance, pollution control, and a variety of other related issues.



Green Manufacturing and Polluting Industries

Recently, concerns with polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) manufacturing have been raised due to the extreme health effects caused by the processes involved. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has extensively studied the effects of PCB effluent discharge on animals as well as humans. Other industries, such as the automotive, construction, and power industries, among others, that employ resource-intensive operations also pose significant dangers to the environment.

Green Manufacturing and Global Warming

Owing to increased concern about global warming and the ramifications of pollutive industries for the global environment, manufacturers are seeking practical solutions that can be implemented to sustain green manufacturing practices. Consumers assume that the products they consume are safe and do not harm the environment. However, manufacturers and consumers need to take a closer look at manufacturing practices. There is a growing need to understand that certain products and their related manufacturing practices can endanger the environment.

Green Manufacturing and American Industry

The International Trade Association (ITA) addressed the concerns of the green manufacturing industry in the United States when it held a green manufacturing day on May 30, 2007. The ITA intends to identify opportunities and challenges that manufacturers face in committing to sustainable development practices.

Green Manufacturing and Government Support

There is increasing public and private participation in the United States with respect to the issue of green manufacturing. Although green manufacturing solutions are feasible, it is difficult to implement them without government and community support. Therefore, what is required is participation from all sides to implement green manufacturing solutions using the right initiatives across the manufacturing industry.

Summary

Green manufacturing holds enhanced promise for the government, manufacturers, and industry across the United States. Moving away from traditional and wasteful manufacturing practices will give green manufacturing a significant boost. Furthermore, by engaging in green manufacturing practices, U.S. manufacturers will set an example for industries around the world to emulate, which will ultimately benefit us all.
