Dryer - Natural Gas Fired, Solvent-Laden Towels, = or < 950 lb towels/day
Pollutant Achieved in Practice or in the SIP Technologically Feasible Alternate Basic Equipment
CO0.348 lb CO/MMBtu natural gas fired burner0.0375 lb CO/MMBtu natural gas fired burnerElectrical Dryer
NOx0.061 lb NOx /MMBtu natural gas fired burner0.025 lb NOx /MMBtu natural gas fired burnerElectrical Dryer
VOC1. VOC capture and control with thermal oxidation. 2. VOC capture and control with catalytic oxidation. 3. VOC capture and control with carbon adsorption.


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.
