Ethan Allens furniture manufacturing facility in Beecher Falls, Vermont was one of the largest emitters of air pollutants in the state. Every year their reports under SARA Title III publicized their position as one of the states worst polluters. In an effort to improve their image within Vermont, to comply with Vermonts air toxic rule, and to stay ahead of the coming Clean Air Act standards for wood furniture, the Beecher Falls plant decided to make changes that would reduce their air emissions. This case study describes the main pollution prevention (P2) projects they implemented and provides details of the benefits and challenges associated with their efforts.
