Polyester Resin Products - Gel Coating of Plumbing Fixtures = or < 100 gallon resin/day
Pollutant Achieved in Practice or in the SIP Technologically Feasible Alternate Basic Equipment
VOC1. Thermal incineration using low VOC resin (< 39% by wt), non-VOC containing cleanup solvents 2. Catalytic incineration using low VOC resin (< 39% by wt), non-VOC containing cleanup solvents 3. Carbon absorption using low VOC resin (< 39% by wt), non-VOC containing cleanup solvents 4. Low VOC resin (< 39% by wt), using Air Assisted Airless spray gun and/or hand lay-up, non-VOC containing cleanup solvents


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.
