The report outlines the approach taken by EPA to review existing test reports for evaluating volatile organic compounds (VOC) control device effectiveness and identifying missing control device effectiveness information. A format is presented to provide guidance and serve as the basis for all future databases involving VOC control effectiveness. The format will serve as a summary page to be attached to each test report for quick reference. Results indicate average control device efficiencies of 91 to 96% based on the method used and the device tested. Note that the populations considered in this task were small and geographically biased.
