Subject: P2 in Paint Manufacturing


I've been looking in several places, with very little success, for 
technical information on p2 in paint manufacturing.  first, what are the 
main p2 technologies.  I have found some information on the use of 4 
technologies
1). nitrogen blankets on fixed paint mixing tanks,
2). the use of rotary valves on bag dump stations,
3). the use of vapor and dust collection on portable paint mixing tanks, and
4). improved scheduling to reduce the number of tank rinsings required.

For each of these and any other paint manufacturing P2 technologies, I am 
looking for detailed case studies showing costs of installation, costs of 
operations, and savings both economically and with reducing wastes 
including especially VOC reductions.

I'm surprised that I couldn't find more on this topic.  there is much more 
on painting but not so much on paint making.

Thanks in advance,

Gary
