The paper summarizes the results of joint projects conducted during the last 6 years by the Department of Defense and EPA to control volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and toxic emissions. Major emphasis has been on product coating and metal finishing: (1) paint stripping using plastic media blasting, (2) carbon adsorption for methylchloroform and Freon emissions, (3) fluidized-bed catalytic incineration and hybrid carbon adsorption incineration, (4) paint spray booth wet-to-dry conversion, and (5) catalytic oxidation for controlling chlorinated VOCs.
