Flexible Vinyl and Urethane Coating and Printing: New Source Performance Standards (NSPS)
The source category is being renamed "flexible vinyl and urethane coating and printing." The standard implements Section 111 of the Clean Air Act and is based on the Administrator's determination that rotogravure printing and coating of flexible vinyl and urethane causes, or contributes significantly to air pollution which may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare.
The intended effect of this standard is to require all new, modified, and reconstructed printing lines used for rotogravure printing and coating of flexible vinyl and urethane to achieve emission limitations reflecting the best demonstrated system of emission reduction, considering costs, nonair quality health, and environmental and energy impacts.
EPA estimates this rule reduces nationwide emissions of VOC by an estimated 870 tons (790 Mg), which represents a 57 percent reduction over required SIP controls (baseline).
