NATM Green Manufacturing Award Tracks NATM Green Manufacturing Award By Cynthia Shauer, PPG Comercial Coatings


PPG Commercial Coatings and the National Association of Trailer Manufacturers (NATM) honored CAM Superline with the 2016 Green Manufacturing Award.


Based in Waynesboro, Pa., CAM Superline manufactures dump trailers for the construction and excavating industries. The award was presented to company president Sandy Poffenberger at the 28th annual NATM Convention and Trade Show held in Las Vegas, Nev., at the South Point Hotel Feb. 10–12.


The Green Manufacturing Award honors the NATM member with the year’s best solution or innovation that has a positive impact on the environment. This may include improvements in material utilization, design advancement, process or equipment enhancements, emissions reductions, recycling methods and other environmentally sensitive areas. CAM Superline earned the 2016 award by adopting several green technologies and practices that reduced the impact on the environment and helped lower costs. Steps CAM Superline took included:


Upgrading to energy-efficient lighting for its manufacturing facility.





Inside: moving to T5 high bay fluorescent lighting from 400- watt mercury-vapor lighting.





Outside: moving to high- efficiency LED lighting with daylight sensors and property lights.


• Energy costs were cut in half.


Eliminating use of a contaminant pre-paint wash.


• A pre-paint wash containing phosphate and molybdenum was replaced with an environmentally acceptable zirconium wash. Phosphate and molybdenum in wastewater negatively affect the

Chesapeake Bay watershed; chemicals entering the bay can harm humans and hurt the survival, growth and reproduction of fish and wildlife.


In addition, operational efficiencies reduced the use of the zirconium-based wash by 28 percent over the last two years.


Decreasing VOC emissions. •


Emissions from paint processes have declined by 1,808.80 pounds between 2013 and 2015, despite a 15 percent increase in trailer production.


Implementing recycling programs throughout the company. •


All cardboard, paper, wood, steel, used toner cartridges and skids are collected and sent out for recycling purposes. Reusable skid material is used throughout production storage areas and for shipping purposes.
