GLRPPR Sector Resource: Wood Finishing Demonstration Project: Final Report

Title:
Wood Finishing Demonstration Project: Final Report

Abstract:
The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency's Small Business Assistance Program (SBAP) and the Minnesota Technical Assistance Program (MnTAP) received a two year Leadership Grant from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 1995. The focus of the grant is to provide multi-media compliance and pollution prevention assistance to wood furniture manufacturers, cabinet manufacturers and millwork shops in Minnesota. The grant allows the MPCA and MnTAP a unique opportunity to provide compliance assistance to the wood finishers in the state and to work toward voluntary reductions to ensure that the ambient air quality standards for ozone are maintained.

The secondary wood products industry is an important industrial sector in Minnesota both economically and environmentally. Over 1,000 furniture, cabinet and millwork shops exist in Minnesota. These shops are a significant emission source of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). The secondary wood products industry is one which is receiving more regulatory scrutiny through the Wood Furniture Manufacturing National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) and in locations that do not meet the national ambient air quality standard for ozone.

This report documents the results of the pollution prevention demonstration project, which is one component of the grant.
