Last Update: 5/1/1997


Polyester Resin Products - Synthetic Marble Casting
Pollutant Achieved in Practice or in the SIP Technologically Feasible Alternate Basic Equipment
PM10Spray booth with exhaust filters and HVLP or equivalent application equipment as specified in Rule 4684 (Polyester Resin Operations)
VOC1. VOC capture and control with thermal incineration using typical resins, pigmented gel coats and clear gel coats for this category of operation 2. VOC capture and control with carbon adsorption using typical resins, pigmented gel coats and clear gel coats for this category of operation 3.Use of the following resins & gel coats: low VOC resins with a monomer wt content = 34%; low VOC pigmented gel coats with a monomer wt content = 35%; and low VOC clear gel coats with a monomer wt content = 47%


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.
