November Air Quality Brown Bag

The Maricopa County Air Quality Department continues its 2011 Brown Bag series event on Monday, November 14 at 12:00 p.m. at the department’s offices, 1001 N. Central Ave., Phoenix.


Topic:             Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

Presenter:       LiSa Kon, permitting engineer


Topic Outline:  As air quality forecasters “close the books” on Ozone Season, regulators must remain focused on one of the key ingredients to the formation of ozone; volatile organic compounds.  During our November Brown Bag series, Permit Engineer LiSa Kon will talk about the sources of VOCs and the regulations associated with the pollutant.  Businesses with permit limits for VOCs will learn how to calculate the VOC content of typical coatings used in industrial processes. 


RSVP requested

The Brown Bag is open to the public at no charge.  Please RSVP to attend this brown bag session to Kenneth Hooker by e-mail: or by phone (602) 506-5102.
