December 24, 1980 RACT/LAER Determination for Casket Coaters 26.15

This memo transmits another memo from James C. Berry, Chief, Chemical Applications Section, ESED. Berry's memo addresses a particular case, Batesville Casket Company, in an attempt to outline the OAQPS technical position on the coating of caskets. Berry's memo recommends that EPA not accept Batesville's proposal for solvent emissions (coatings to be used) in a new plant planned for Kentucky. It is not obvious that Batesville has exhausted the options available for reducing emissions from their color coat operation via either use of coatings with lower solvent content or installation of an add-on control device. Also attached to this memo are notes from a meeting held to determine feasibility of control for Batesville Casket Company.
