The paper discusses an investigation of cleaning requirements and pollution prevention options for equipment cleaning in the coated and laminated substrate manufacturing industry. The investigation, assisted by trade associations and industry personnel, identified two industrial segments: large, dedicated-line and small, batch-processing facilities. Although both segments use similar cleaning methods, each has very specific cleaning requirements. Demonstration visits were conducted at small, batch-processing and small, dedicated-line facilities. The results of the demonstrations showed several ways by which emissions and waste from equipment cleaning could be reduced. The demonstrated techniques included consolidation of currently used cleaning materials, successful use alternative cleaners, and reduction in the quantity of material used for cleaning.
