This manual presents pollution prevention options for the two major sectors of the flexible polyurethane foam industry: slabsock and molded foam production. Designed for use by both polyurethane foam manufacturers and regulatory personnel, it: provides an overview of the flexible foam industry and chemistry of foam production, common to both slabstock and molded industry segments; details manufacturing processes and potential P2 measures for slabstock and molded foam production; details pollution prevention opportunities for operations that are common to both; and provides worksheets for pollution prevention measures, emission and cost calculations, and lists additional resources. This manual will be useful for those interested and/or involved in the industry: facility managers, regulators and environmental managers and engineers.
