VOC1. 65% capture efficiency (open-faced booth) with thermal/catalytic incineration, and the use of coatings with a VOC content (less water and exempt compounds) of 4.6 lb/gal for clear topcoats, 3.2 lb/gal for high-solid coatings, and 4.6 lb/gal for sanding sealers 2. 65% capture efficiency (open-faced booth) with carbon adsorption, and the use of coatings with a VOC content (less water and exempt compounds) of 4.6 lb/gal for clear topcoats, 3.2 lb/gal for high-solid coatings, and 4.6 lb/gal for sanding sealers 3. 65% capture efficiency (open-faced booth) with thermal/catalytic incineration, and the use of typical coatings for this source and category of operation 4. 65% capture efficiency (open-faced booth) with carbon adsorption, and the use of typical coatings for this source and category of operation 5. Coatings with a VOC content (less water and exempt compounds) of 4.6 lb/gal for clear topcoats, 3.2 lb/gal for high-solid coatings, and 4.6 lb/gal for sanding sealers, using HVLP spray equipment


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.
