Question We are in the process of implementing an ESD program. the personnel on the floor are accustomed to having food and drink at their work stations. Are there ESD alternatives that we can use to supplement plastic and styrofoam food and beverage containers? - John, Asheville, North Carolina
Answer The first solution would be complete removal of all such items.

Second solution would be to substitute the high-charging items (plastic wrap and Styrofoam) with lower charging items such as glass, metal, paper or possibly ceramic. You can test the tribocharge properties of these items with the use of a field meter prior to designating them okay for use.

And a last alternative, would be to invest in ionization that would control the charges from these items.
