Environmental Benefits:

The process eliminated the use of hexavalent chromium that had to be converted to trivalent chromium to be acceptable for disposal. The conversion was costly and produced over 160 cubic yards of waste to be landfilled. The potential liabilities were enormous. The change to the zirconic acid system eliminated the use of chromium, its associated waste streams and its liabilities.
