Choose Plasma Ruggedized Solutions For Sustainable, Green Operations
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
The importance of maintaining environmentally friendly manufacturing operations is imperative for reducing waste and contributing to a more sustainable ecosystem. At Plasma Ruggedized Solutions, we have remained committed to a sustainable environment, as evidenced by our Reduce, Reuse and Recycle manufacturing processes. Our NADCAP, AS9100, and NASA-certified processes strategically eliminate damaging solvents, packaging material and wasteful products. As a result, we proudly, successfully and continuously reduce single-use materials, wastewater, VOC emissions and more.

Green Manufacturing Processes
The implementation of additive manufacturing to our processes has greatly reduced single-use materials/plastics, while our internal closed-loop zero discharge water filtration systems have reduced on wastewater. In fact, by utilizing Plasma equipment in processing PCBA’s and bare boards, we eliminate over 1,000 lb. of VOC emissions and over 60,000 gallons of wastewater per year. By adding parylene to our wet etching processes, we reduce the need for additional chemicals to terminate the chemical vapor deposition reaction. This reduces chemical waste generated by 8.6% per year as an alternative to wet coatings. Additionally, we utilize VOC-exempt solvents as much as possible to reduce what would be harmful to the environment by 74% per year. Solvent-less materials are substituted when possible to reduce VOC emissions by 5% per year as well.
Sustainable Manufacturing Practices, Measurable Impact
Our Reduce, Reuse and Recycle manufacturing process has reduced a number of contaminants from being unnecessarily discharged into the environment. Some impressive statistics include:
- We have reduced single-use materials by 20%
- We have reduced wastewater to 20k gallons annually
- 95% of our packaging materials are recyclable
- 50% of our annual Isopropyl Alcohol usage is recycled
- 95% of metals used in manufacturing is recycled
