VOCUse of materials with VOC contents (less water and exempt compounds) as indicated, or lower: - antifouling coatings: aluminum substrate: 440 g/l, other substrates: 330 g/l, - high gloss coatings: 340 g/l** - extreme high gloss coatings: 490 g/l*** - pretreatment wash primers: 420 g/l - primers: 340 g/l - all other coatings: 340 g/l1. VOC capture and control (thermal incineration, catalytic incineration, or equal) with a minimum overall control efficiency of 98%. 2. VOC capture and control (carbon adsorption or equal with a minimum overall control efficiency of 95%)
** high gloss coating: any coating that achieves at least 85% reflectance on a 60 degree meter when tested by ASTM Method D-523 ***extreme high gloss coating: any coating that achieves at least 95% reflectance on a 60 degree meter when tested by ASTM Method D-523

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.
