Surface Coating Pollution Prevention Opportunities Checklist Mobile App
Significant amounts of pollutants are generated from paint and coatings processes.
How does it work?
The exact amount for the nation is difficult to calculate, because use is spread across numerous industry groups, and companies do not report emissions by the manufacturing process to EPA. Wastes from paint application include leftover paints, dirty thinner from the cleaning of spray guns and paint cups, air emissions of VOCs and HAPs, dirty spray booth filters, dirty rags, debris from area washdowns, and outdated supplies. Simple and cost-effective ways to reduce these wastes include rigid inventory control, good housekeeping practices, proper paint mixing, increased operator training, high transfer efficiency equipment, proper cleaning methods, alternative coatings, reusable paint booth filters, recycling solvents, and the use of waste exchanges. This app includes an easy to use surface coating pollution prevention opportunities checklist. The Surface Coating Pollution Prevention Opportunities Checklist mobile app allows you to replace your paper checklist with an Android, iPhone, tablet or Windows desktop computer. The mobile form includes fields to document items such as inspection date, job site, location, inspector's name and captures the inspector's signature. Once the mobile app is filled out a secure PDF is generated. The PDF is easy to share, and a copy is stored in your account for your air quality control records. You can also use the App Builder to personalize and customize this mobile form.
