Flexographic Printing - Corrugated Boxes, Low-end Graphics
Pollutant Achieved in Practice or in the SIP Technologically Feasible Alternate Basic Equipment
VOCuse of coating with a VOC content (less water and exempt compounds) as indicated, or lower: 0.3 lb/gal and evaporative minimization methods, which include keeping all solvents and solvent-laden cloths/papers, not in active use, in closed containers.1) capture of VOCs and thermal or catalytic oxidation 2) capture of VOCs and carbon absorption 3) capture of VOCs and regenerative thermal oxidizer


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.
