Control of VOC emissions from miscellaneous metal parts surface coating processes, miscellaneous plastic parts surface coating processes and pleasure craft surface coatings.  This proposed rulemaking, which is based on EPA’s Control Technique Guidelines issued on September 21, 2008,  would regulate emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and would apply to the owner and operator of a facility that manufactures miscellaneous metal parts or products, or miscellaneous plastic parts or products, or a combination, that performs surface coating of the parts and products that it produces.  This may include pleasure craft surface coating. 

This proposed rulemaking would also apply to the owner and operator of a facility that performs surface coating of miscellaneous metal parts or products, or miscellaneous plastic parts or products, on a contract basis or to the owner and operator of a facility that performs surface coating of miscellaneous metal parts or products, or miscellaneous plastic parts or products, that are acquired by the company for other purposes.  Similarly, this may include pleasure craft surface coating. 

These parts or products are constructed either entirely or partially from metal or plastic. These miscellaneous metal parts and products and plastic parts and products include metal and plastic components of the following types of products as well as the products themselves: fabricated metal products, molded plastic parts, small and large farm machinery, commercial and industrial machinery and equipment, automotive or transportation equipment, interior or exterior automotive parts, construction equipment, motor vehicle accessories, bicycles and sporting goods, toys, recreational vehicles, pleasure craft (recreational boats), extruded aluminum structural components, railroad cars, heavier vehicles, lawn and garden equipment, business machines, laboratory and medical equipment, electronic equipment, steel drums, metal pipes, and numerous other industrial and household products. 

Compliance with the proposed requirements would be through the use of compliant coating and cleaning materials, installation and operation of a VOC emission capture system and add-on air pollution control device, or a combination of these two methods.  Specified work practice requirements for coating-related activities and for cleaning materials would also be required.  The proposal would also include recordkeeping and reporting requirements and specified coating application methods.
