Aluminum Diecasting Furnace
Pollutant Achieved in Practice or in the SIP Technologically Feasible Alternate Basic Equipment
NOxReverb Furnaces (non-sweating): 53 ppmvd @ 3% O2 (0.0643 lb/MMBtu) with the use of Low-NOx BurnersReverb Furnaces (non-sweating): 1. 6.0 ppmvd @ 3% O2 (0.0073 lb/MMBtu) with use of Low-NOx Burners and Selective Catalytic Reduction 2. 12.0 ppmvd @ 3% O2 (0.0146 lb/MMBtu) with use of Low-NOx Burners and Regenerative Selective Catalytic Reduction 3. 30 ppmvd @ 3% O2 (0.0364 lb/MMBtu with use of Low-NOx Burners and Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction)Use of Electric Furnaces
PM10Reverb Furnaces (non-sweating): Use of "clean charge" without addition of any flux, and the use of natural gas fuel in the furnace.Reverb Furnaces (non-sweating): Use of baghouse and natural gas fuel in the furnace


BACT is the most stringent control technique for the emissions unit and class of source. Control techniques that are not achieved in practice or contained in s a state implementation plan must be cost effective as well as feasible. Economic analysis to demonstrate cost effectiveness is requried for all determinations that are not achieved in practice or contained in an EPA approved State Implementation Plan.

This is a Summary Page for this Class of Source. For background information, see Permit Specific BACT Determinations on Details Page.
