The report presents an assessment of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from fiberglass boat manufacturing. A description of the industry structures is presented, including estimates of the number of facilities, their size, and geographic distribution. The fiberglass boat manufacturing process is described, along with sources and types of VOC emissions. Model plants representative of typical facilities are also described. Estimates of VOC emissions are presented on per plant and national bases. VOC emissions from this industry consist mainly of styrene emission from gel coating and lamination, and acetone or other solvent emissions from clean-up activities. Finally, potential VOC control technologies are evaluated for this industry, including a discussion of technical feasibility. Limited cost data are also presented.
