A State pollution control agency requested assistance from EPA's Control Technology Center (CTC) in estimating formaldehyde emissions from furniture manufacturing processes. These plants use urea-formaldehyde adhesive resin formulations which emit formaldehyde during application, curing, and storage. The primary sources of information for the study include library and permit data base searches, telephone conferences and meetings with members of the furniture and adhesive manufacturing industries. The report estimates emission factors for the most significant sources and discusses the impact of process variables and modifications on these emissions.
