PM10For spray applications: Enclosed booth with particulate control filters, or equal.
VOCUsing materials with a VOC content, less water and exempt compounds, as indicated, or lower High-end graphics, screen printing: 3.3 lb/gal High-end graphics, non-screen printing: 2.5 lb/gal Non-high-end graphics: 3% by weight (UV-cured inks). and practicing evaporation minimization methods, which include keeping all solvents and solvent-laden cloths/papers, not in active use, in closed containers.1. Capture and control with a thermal oxidizer. 2. 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.
