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.
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.
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.
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
