Abstract:

The metal finishing industry has been impacted by numerous regulatory actions related to the hazardous materials that are used in decorative and functional coating processes. These environmental regulations are applicable to both commercial and government facilities. In addition, Executive Order EO 13423, Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management, and EO 13514, Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance, were recently enacted. These EOs require government agencies to reduce the quantity of toxic and hazardous chemicals and materials acquired, used, or disposed.
