The WMAC team at the University of Louisville performed an assessment at a plant manufacturing industrial coatings -- approximately 2,700,000 gal/yr. The products are diversified, being made in batches of varying size to meet customer specifications. Pigments are milled as needed, and batches are prepared by controlled mixing of solvents, resins, pigments or dyes, and additives. The products are packaged in small containers, drums or tanker trucks, or held in bulk storage tanks. The team's report, detailing findings and recommendations, indicated that most waste occurred as solvent loss by evaporation and as residual solvent in emptied containers, and that the greatest savings could be obtained by fitting batch tanks with covers and submerged-filling tubes to reduce vapor losses and storing solvent drums on an incline to reduce residual solvent remaining in drums.
