Low-VOC Consumer Products and AIM Coatings Market Survey – Final Report Available
As part of future ozone planning for the Denver Metro/North Front Range (DM/NFR) nonattainment area, the Regional Air Quality Council (RAQC), with funding from the Air Pollution Control Division (APCD), recently completed a report on Low-volatile organic compounds (VOC) Consumer Products and Architectural and Industrial Maintenance (AIM) Coatings Market Survey that builds upon a literature review conducted in 2016. The RAQC contracted with consulting firm SC&A Inc. to conduct a market survey with an accompanying technical analysis to identify product categories and primary manufacturers for consumer products and architectural and industrial maintenance (AIM) coatings and assess the potential impact in Colorado of adopting the Ozone Transport Commission (OTC) Model Rules for low-volatile organic compound (VOC) products. In order to take credit for low-VOC products in a State Implementation Plan (SIP), a rulemaking will need to take place in order to make the reductions permanent and enforceable.
