REDUCING EMISSIONS FROM THE WOOD FURNITURE INDUSTRY WITH WATERBORNE COATINGS
Noordwyk, H. REDUCING EMISSIONS FROM THE WOOD FURNITURE INDUSTRY WITH WATERBORNE COATINGS. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, D.C., EPA/600/2-80/160 (NTIS PB80226210), 1980.
This program was initiated to develop meaningful, defensible, and reliable data on emission reduction benefits from the use of reduced hydrocarbon finishes. The program also included assessing add-on emission control options and considering installation aspects such as costs. This program, based on currently available technology, represents the best efforts of finish suppliers and furniture manufacturers to produce furniture coated with lower hydrocarbon finishes. All major finish suppliers participated using waterborne or low-solvent finishes rather than other finish technologies (e.g., powders). The participating furniture companies represented the industry in product line, styles, quality, degree of technical and merchandising sophistication, and processing capabilities.
