Control of VOC Emissions from Automobile and Light-duty Truck Assembly Coating Operations: This proposed rulemaking, which is based on EPA’s Control Technique Guidelines issued on September 30, 2008, would regulate emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from specified automobile and light-duty truck assembly coating operations.
proposed requirements would apply to the owner and operator of an automobile
and light-duty truck assembly coating operation or business that applies an
automobile assembly coating or a light-duty truck assembly coating, or both, to
a new automobile body or a new light-duty truck body, to a body part for a new
automobile or a new light-duty truck, or to another part that is coated along
with the new automobile body or body part or light-duty truck body or body
proposed rulemaking would also apply to the owner and operator of a heavier
vehicle coating operation which coats a body or body part for a new heavier
proposal would also apply to the owner and operator of a separate coating line
at an automobile and light-duty truck assembly coating facility on which a
coating is applied to another part intended for use in a new automobile or new
light-duty truck or to an aftermarket repair or replacement part for an
automobile or light-duty truck.
proposed VOC content limits and work practice requirements would apply
beginning January 1, 2016, to an owner and operator subject to the proposed
rulemaking that has total actual VOC emissions from all automobile and
light-duty truck assembly coating operations at the facility, including related
cleaning activities, equal to or greater than 15 pounds per day before
consideration of VOC emission controls.
and operators of all affected facilities, including those owners and operators
of affected facilities that have total actual VOC emissions below 15 pounds per
day, including related cleaning activities and before consideration of VOC
emission controls, would be subject to certain recordkeeping and reporting
