"Bright Dip" Aluminum Surface Finishing Operation
Pollutant Achieved in Practice or in the SIP Technologically Feasible Alternate Basic Equipment
HNO397% capture (dip tank vented to fume hood) and 96% control (fume hood vented to packed tower scrubber or equivalent)
NOx97% capture (dip tank vented to fume hood) and 70% control (fume hood vented to packed tower scrubber or equivalent)


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.
