Best Available Control Technology (BACT ) Guideline 4.3.16
Last Update: 11/4/2003


Coated Steel Storage/Drying Operation
Pollutant Achieved in Practice or in the SIP Technologically Feasible Alternate Basic Equipment
VOC1) VOC capture and control system achieving overall control efficiency of at least 95% with one of the following: a) catalytic oxidizer, thermal oxidizer with low NOx burner, or thermal oxidizer and concentrator b) carbon adsorption c) refrigeration/condensation d) biofiltration 2) open storage/drying


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.
