This Manual is divided into four chapters. Chapter 1 contains background information on the reasons for regulating emissions from pressure sensitive tapes and labels manufacturing including an overview of the health effects of the solvents used in the largest quantities, sources of emissions from a typical manufacturing facility, and a summary of federal regulatory developments. Chapter 2 defines pollution prevention (P2) and discusses the elements of a successful P2 program. Chapter 2 is somewhat general and is included as a reference to provide companies with a framework for evaluating the pollution prevention opportunities presented in Chapter 3 and for developing a comprehensive pollution prevention program, if desired. Chapter 3 presents the various P2 opportunities available for pressure sensitive tape and label coating, cleaning, and housekeeping operations. Chapter 4 concludes with recommended pollution prevention strategies.
