This report provides an evaluation of commercially viable source reduction techniques implemented by a manufacturer of wood chairs, bar stools and settees in various styles ranging from classic American to European contemporary. The Dinaire Corporation began testing alternative formulations employed as waterborne finishes, sealers and topcoats. In an effort to minimize costly investments in air emission control equipment, the company examined and implemented a number of source reduction techniques that dictated modifications to raw material formulations as well as equipment needed to apply and cure surface finishes. By phasing in low VOC, water-based formulations in conjunction with high volume low pressure spray systems, an ultraviolet curing system and procedural modifications, Dinaire was able to show reductions in the quantities of hazardous waste as well as the overall loadings of volatile organic compunds released as hazardous air pollutants.
