consprod -- 2010 Aerosol Coating and Aerosol Adhesive Products Survey - Preliminary Results Posted: 02 Feb 2012 14:35:34
The California Air Resources Board (ARB) has posted additional results from the 2010 Aerosol Coating and Aerosol Adhesive Products Survey. These can be found at the following address: http://www.arb.ca.gov/consprod/regact/2010surv/datasum2010.htm. Comments on the results are due by February 20, 2012. In September 2011, staff released preliminary data collected on the various products in each category and a summary of reactive organic compound (ROC) ingredients used. To supplement this information, staff is now releasing preliminary data on sales and emissions. This information will serve as the basis for considering amendments to the Aerosol Coatings and Consumer Products Regulations to further reduce emissions. Summary: To quantify and evaluate emissions from these categories ARB conducted a survey of aerosol coating and aerosol adhesive products sold or supplied for use in California during the 2010 calendar year. New data from the survey reveal that approximately 30 tons of ROCs were emitted daily from the 40 tons of aerosol coating products sold per day. Californiaís reported sales of approximately 2 tons per day of aerosol adhesive products resulted in approximately 1.3 tons ROC emissions per day. Background: ARB is investigating the need for tighter controls on emissions of ROCs from aerosol coating and aerosol adhesive products. ROCs are a precursor to the formation of ozone, the main constituent of smog. ARBís Consumer Products Program, which includes Aerosol Coatings and Aerosol Adhesives, is an important part of overall efforts to reduce the amount of smog-forming emissions, toxic air contaminants, and greenhouse gases emitted from the use of chemically formulated consumer products. ARBís consumer products regulations have resulted in projected emission reductions of nearly 50 percent since 1990, but more needs to be done to meet health-based air quality standards.
