Adhesive Application Process - Non-Porous Materials, Specialty Contact Adhesives, Spray Application
Pollutant Achieved in Practice or in the SIP Technologically Feasible Alternate Basic Equipment
VOCUsing adhesives with a VOC content of 540 grams/liter or less (less water and exempt compounds) until July 1, 2000. Using adhesives with a VOC content of 400 grams/liter or less (less water and exempt compounds) after July 1, 2000.1. VOC capture and control with thermal or catalytic incineration 2. VOC 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.
