Last Update: 12/5/2003


Polyester Resin Application - Boat & Marine Vessel Repair Operations (Pleasure Crafts Only)
Pollutant Achieved in Practice or in the SIP Technologically Feasible Alternate Basic Equipment
PM10Enclosed paint spray booth with particulate filters and HVLP application equipment (or equivalent)
VOCuse of specialty resins and gel coats containing no more than 48% monomer by weight.1. VOC capture and control (thermal incineration, catalytic incineration, or equal) with a minimum overall control efficiency of 98%, 2. VOC capture and control (carbon adsorption or equal) with a minimum overall control efficiency of 95%.


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.
