Ohio EPA emphasizes pollution prevention, reducing waste at the source, as a way to meet or exceed regulatory requirements and often save money. Therefore, we are including this excerpt from National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) for Metal Coil Coating 40 CFR part 63, otherwise known as the Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT). The excerpt features pollution prevention as part of the means to compliance, particularly in the purchasing and application of low HAP coatings. Of course; to ensure full compliance, you are still obligated to refer to the complete rule, Federal Register / Vol. 65, No. 138 / Tuesday, July 18, 2000, pages 44616 to 44639 which can also be found at: http://www.epa.gov/ttn/uatw/mcoil/fr18jy00.pdf Additional information regarding implementation and resources for this rule are also available at: http://www.epa.gov/ttn/uatw/mcoil/mcoilpg.html
§ 63.5170 How do I demonstrate compliance with the standard?
(a) As-purchased compliant coatings.
If you elect to use coatings that individually meet the limits in § 63.5120(a)(2) as-purchased, to which you will not add HAP during distribution or application, you must demonstrate that each coating material applied during the month contains no more than 0.029 kg HAP per liter of solids on an as-purchased basis.
(b) As-applied compliant coatings.
You must demonstrate that each coating material applied contains no more than 0.029 kg of organic HAP per liter of solids applied in accordance with paragraph (b)(1) of this section, or
demonstrate that the monthly average of all coating materials applied contain no more than 0.029 kg of organic HAP per liter of solids applied in accordance with paragraph (b)(2) of this section.
Again, this information is incomplete, but intended to highlight pollution
prevention(P2) opportunities identified in this rule. Please review the entire
rule thoroughly to determine compliance requirements for your facility. For
further assistance regarding MACT compliance, contact Radhica Sastry at email@example.com,
