Automotive Refinishing Pollution Prevention Outreach Program

This page updated June 11, 2008.

Our outreach program focused on the individuals responsible for application of coatings. The program taught them to optimize the spray application technique and provided them with a state-of-the-art technology designed to further improve transfer efficiency. Our autotmotive refinishing pollution prevention outreach program trained spray technicians on methods developed by the Iowa Reduction Center's Spray Technique Analysis and Research (STAR®) program. The techniques and technologies we used in our outreach program was applicable in a wide range of coatings operations that impact California's air, water, and a land.
