The report provides information on the spray booth cleaning process and alternative cleaning practices that reduce or eliminate the use of organic cleaning solvents. It provides a ready reference to actions reported by eight automobile companies to reduce emissions from booth cleaning operations. It is carefully referenced to allow readers to take advantage of others' work. A summary of the cleaning practices currently being used by 15 automobile assembly plants is included, as is each plant's VOC emissions from spray booth cleaning. Additionally, a summary of the alternative cleaning practices identified for each major component of the booth is presented, and the non-VOC cleaning practices are identified. The Unit Operation System (UOS) material balance approach was used to calculate VOC emissions from cleaning spray booths.
