Last Update: 9/26/2003


Adhesive Application Process - Vinyl Door and Window Assembly, Non-Spray Applied
Pollutant Achieved in Practice or in the SIP Technologically Feasible Alternate Basic Equipment
VOC1) Use of adhesive with VOC content of 3.0 g/l (less water and exempt compounds), or less for automated adhesive application and assembly processes 2) Use of adhesive with VOC content of 76.5 g/l (less water and exempt compounds), or less for manually applied adhesive operations when assembling custom window assemblies1) Thermal Oxidizer 2) 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.
