The Voluntary Aluminum Industrial Partnership (VAIP) is an innovative pollution prevention program developed jointly by EPA and the primary aluminum industry. Participating companies (partners) work with EPA to improve aluminum production efficiency while reducing perfluorocarbon (PFC) emissions, potent greenhouse gases that remain in the atmosphere for thousands of years. The VAIP promotes development and adoption of cost-effective PFC emissions reduction opportunities including technological and operational changes such as employee training, use of computer monitoring, and optimizing production processes
