The information in this manual can help operators assess operations and processes for pollution prevention options in using 'cleaner' technologies and more efficient management practices. Suggestions contained within this manual can guide improvements in quality and efficiency, indirectly impacting prevention in terms of reduced wastes. The manual has three general sections: An overview of the industry and an introduction to pollution prevention for paints and coatings operations; Pollution prevention considerations; and Case studies emphasizing approaches for reducing process waste. Appendixes provide a list of suppliers of aqueous and semi-aqueous degreasers and equipment, methodology for specified dilution ratio calculations, and a spreadsheet for factoring transfer efficiency considerations into application processes. The audience for this document are facility operators and managers, manufacturing process managers, painters, and environmental engineers.
