Note about page content

Many of the materials listed here were published in the mid to late 1990s. During that time, there was a big push by EPA and state pollution prevention programs to develop manuals to help companies comply with the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. Although specific technologies may have changed since these materials were originally published, many of the pollution prevention options for painting and coating operations are still applicable.
