Abstract
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has the responsibility of reducing the levels of VOC emissions from the nation's stationary and mobile sources. The project was directed at assessing the levels of VOC emissions from ship painting operations with the intent of determining the need for research activity in this industry. A secondary objective was to identify control technologies or new technology concepts which may be used or developed and demonstrated that lowers the levels of VOC emissions during ship painting. The investigators reviewed the literature and made direct contact with the ship building and repairing industry to develop their conclusions and recommendations on technology concepts. On a combined basis the 76 largest shipyards in the U.S. were found to currently emit 41 to 95 metric tons (45 to 105 short tons) of VOC into the atmosphere each operating day. Military painting account for approximately 50 percent of that volume. The technology approach for potentially reducing the VOC emissions levels are paint reformulation and increase transfer efficiency of the painting equipment.
