Wood Finishing Industry Assistance

Can of wood finishing productWood is coated to protect it from physical and chemical damage, and natural degradation, as well as to impart an aesthetically pleasing finishing. The coating materials traditionally used by the wood finishing industry contain a substantial quantity of solvents that volatilize to the air within the facility and/or vented outside to the environment.

Through pollution prevention techniques and compliance assistance, NHDES can help wood finishers to reduce emissions and waste, encourage compliance with environmental regulations, and create a healthier environment for workers and the state.
