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.
