The report discusses EPA efforts to identify, demonstrate, and publish pollution prevention information and opportunites for equipment cleaning for the coated and laminated substrate manufacturing industry. It summarizes initial data collected and summarized during industry observation and demonstration visits. Demonstration took place at a small batch facility and a small dedicated-line facility. The focus at the batch facility was to decrease the number of solvents used for cleaning, reducing the quantity of material used for cleaning, and standardizing cleaning practices. While consolidating from three chemicals (toluene, xylene, and methyl ethyl ketone) to a single solvent for cleaning may not be feasible because of the varied product mix, the facility could eliminate one solvent, thereby reducing handling and disposal costs.
