Upcoming Spray Efficiency Training
By Ken Grimm, Pollution Prevention Resource Center

The Pacific Northwest Pollution Prevention Resource Center (PPRC) and Ecology have teamed up again to offer spray efficiency training to companies that do surface coating.
Look for these upcoming workshops around the state (dates and location details still to be determined):
These workshops are open to any business that does surface coating. The training will include:
Proven efficiency increases
PPRC has provided spray efficiency training to more than 200 companies nationwide, including industrial, aerospace, collision repair, and shipyard sectors.
Based on over 10 years of data, PPRC has found that, on average, autobody painters reduce their volume of paint by 22 percent after training. Military painters see a 27 percent average reduction. Woodfold, a woodworking company based in Oregon, reduced their paint usage costs by $34,664 the year after taking spray efficiency training, despite a 10 percent increase in production.
Ecology and PPRC are interested in outreach to all communities. If you want to learn more about this training or have a workshop conducted in your area, please contact PPRC Industry Outreach Manager Ken Grimm at 206-352-2050 or email@example.com.
