Download the document.

A leading manufacturer of electronic capacitors globally, CD Aero (formally known as Aerovox)
has been in business for over 100 years. Located in New Bedford, Massachusetts, the company
employs 80 people and manufactures intelligent capacitor solutions for industries such as the
medical, military, health and beauty sectors. CD Aero’s capacitors are supplied to original
equipment manufacturers and end up in products such as defibrillators and laser hair removal
devices.

After a change in ownership, CD Aero worked with the Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI) and
the Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance (OTA) to find a safer alternative cleaning
process to the use of n-propyl bromide (nPB). With a new aqueous cleaning process, the
company is now saving $46,000 per year, protecting health and safety and reducing its
regulatory obligations.
