SIC Codes of the Paper and Other Web Coating IndustryNOTE: A source list for the Paper and Other Web Coating Industry is not available. Provided below are the SIC codes associated with this source category. The information was taken from the Paper and Other Web Coating Operations - BID Document (EPA-453/R-00-002).
This file was modified on 1/21/03 to include NAICS Codes for corresponding industries in Table 2-2.
2.3 INDUSTRY PROFILE
The POWC industry includes the manufacture of a wide range of products. Table 2-2 presents a listing of 18 Standard Industrial Classification codes (SIC) codes for industries that include products or processes that are likely to be manufactured or used, respectively, by the POWC industry. As shown in the table, the POWC industry is thought to encompass a large number of SIC codes. However, there may be facilities operating under other SIC codes not included in Table 2-2 that also apply coating to web substrates, such as paper, plastic, film, foil, and foam. In addition, all facilities operating under these SIC codes are not necessarily members of this source category; many of the 18 SIC codes cover only one or two products that are manufactured with web coating. Some of the 18 SIC codes include facilities that primarily print rather than coat the substrate, that may choose to cover their limited coating operations under the printing and publishing NESHAP. Consequently, while the list of SIC codes presented in Table 2-2 can serve as a guide to identifying many of the facilities in the POWC industry, it should not be used to completely define the industries subject to the POWC NESHAP.
Based on emissions estimates from the Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) system65 for these SIC's, the POWC data gathering efforts focused on the four largest segments of the POWC industry that were defined by their product and process types: pressure-sensitive tapes and labels (SIC 2672), flexible vinyl (SIC 3081), photographic film (SIC 3861), and decorative and industrial laminates (SIC 3083). Therefore, much of the information in this section focuses on these four industry segments. A fifth segment, called "Miscellaneous Coating," is also discussed that includes a number of industries that are identifiable as having some web coating operations associated with their product manufacturing, such as those facilities that do both printing and coating.
Within 1996 TRI data for the 18 POWC SIC's, the four major POWC SIC's (2672, 3081, 3861, 3083) had the greatest percentages of major source HAP emissions, and together represent 79 percent of the TRI emissions and 82 percent of the facilities (if the six Printing and Publishing SIC codes are excluded from the analysis).
