The fiberglass reinforced and composite plastic industries generate wastes (including air emissions) during fabrication processes and from the use of solvents for clean-up tools, molds and spraying equipment. The wastes generated are: partially solidified resins, contaminated solvent from equipment clean-up, scrap coated fiber, solvated resin streams, and volatile organic emissions. The guide manual presents source reduction and recycling opportunities for reducing these wastes. Suggestions include using substitutes for solvent cleaners, making changes to mixing and application equipment, recovering and recycling solvent, and implementing good materials management and housekeeping practices. To help companies in the industry identify opportunities for waste reduction at their own facilities, the guide includes a set of worksheets which take the user step-by-step through an analysis of the on-site waste generating operations.
