Best Available Control Technology (BACT ) Guideline 4.4.3
Last Update: 11/13/2000


Wood Products Coating Operation - Custom Replica Furniture, < or = 400 lb VOC/day
Pollutant Achieved in Practice or in the SIP Technologically Feasible Alternate Basic Equipment
PM10Enclosed coating operation with exhaust filters and HVLP spray equipment
VOCUse of coating(s) with a VOC content (less water and exempt compounds) as indicated, or lower: - For Sanding Sealers and Clear Topcoats: 5.7 lb/gal - For High-solids Stain and Pigmented Coatings: 5.0 lb/gal and use of HVLP application equipment, or equivalent method, and a enclosed spray gun cleaner if using a VOC containing solvent.1. VOC capture and control with thermal incineration. 2. VOC capture and control with catalytic incineration. 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.
