VOCUse of coatings/inks with a VOC content compliant with Rule 4607 (Graphic Arts) [This control is achieved in practice only for facilities subject to District Rule 4607]1. VOC capture and incineration using coatings/inks with a VOC content compliant with District Rule 4607 (Graphic Arts) 2. VOC capture and carbon adsorption using coatings/inks with a VOC content compliant with District Rule 4607 (Graphic Arts) 3. Use of low-VOC, water based coatings, with a maximum VOC content of 0.3 lb/gal for colored and functional coatings (less water and exempt compounds), and 0.74 lb/gal for specialty coatings (less water and exempt compounds)


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.
