Small business environmental program to host solvent workshop
Kansas State University's Small Business Environmental Assistance Program will host a free workshop called Reducing Solvent Emissions--Green Practices to Improve Air Quality. The program will be held March 10 at the K-State Sedgwick County Extension and Education Center at 7011 West 21st Street North, Wichita.
"This seminar and vendor show will feature new technologies, materials, and process changes that can help businesses save money and reduce emissions," said Nancy Larson, director of K-State's Pollution Prevention Institute, and the SBEAP. "We will also provide information about new air quality permits and MACT (maximum achievable control technology) standards.
All types of businesses that use solvents for parts cleaning, degreasing, and coating processes will learn about low-VOC (volatileorganic compound) solvents, new processes, and technologies that can result in cost savings and reduced air emissions, hazardous waste, and raw material use, Larson said. The workshop will feature demonstrations including a virtual paint booth and other exhibits.
