This report reviews the feasibility considerations regarding each of several potential alternate approaches for determining capture efficiency and experimental testing of one approach, the liquid/gas-phase material balance. Two phases of experimental testing were conducted: laboratory and field investigations. The measured mean capture efficiencies for the field test were higher than expected (106.7% with a coefficient of variation 7.4%). At this time, there is no material balance methodology which is superior to the gas-phase approach using a total enclosure around the regulated coating operation.
