The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a renewed interest in anti-microbial coatings as one method to help stop the spread of the virus. While anti-microbial coatings are not new, their use during the COVID-19 pandemic has increased as new ones have been developed and are being deployed. Anti-microbial coatings are highly regulated by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) so those who want to use them need to be aware of the requirements.
Members can download this fact sheet and watch this video for an introduction and basic background information on the types of anti-microbials, how they work, an overview of EPA’s regulations, and what marketing claims are allowed by EPA.
PRINTING United Alliance is your advocate before federal and state environmental agencies. Since the late 1980s, we have been working to ensure that all regulations -- air, waste and water -- that are adopted reflect the technologies used by our industry sector.
Over the last 20 years our industry has made great strides in reducing its environmental footprint. Current and near-term regulations, as well as pollution prevention and waste minimization practices, have contributed to this phenomenon.
PrUA stands ready to help you understand the environmental issues you face on a daily basis. Contact Marci Kinter or Gary Jones with your questions at Government Affairs.
- EPA's Toxic Substances Control Act
If you use, manufacture, supply or import chemicals, you need to be aware of changes the U.S. EPA is making that will impact you. Check with PRINTING United Alliance for the latest updates regarding new programs under the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA).
- Air Permitting Issues
Do you use products containing volatile organic compounds (VOCs)? Do you operate print equipment? States require all facilities to determine if air permitting is required. Do you know yours? Contact us for a quick look at your state’s requirements.
- Air Pollution Control Regulations
Your facility doesn’t have to be in California to need to worry about reducing air emissions. Do you know if your state regulates what you put into the air? Contact us for a look at what your state has implemented.
- Hazardous Waste
All facilities generate hazardous waste. How much you generate determines what you need to do. Do you know your generator status? And what requirements might apply to you? And, yes, used shop towels need to be considered as well. Contact us to learn more about what PRINTING United Alliance has to offer to help you along this pathway.
PRINTING United Alliance continues to keep its members updated on current state and federal regulatory activities.
