Metal Coil Surface Coating: New Source Performance Standards (NSPS)
These standards implement Section 111 of the Clean Air Act and are based on the Administrator's determination that metal coil surface coating operations cause or contribute significantly to all pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare. The intended effect of these standards is to require all new, modified, and reconstructed metal coil surface coating operations to use the best demonstrated system of continuous emission reduction, considering costs, nonair quality health, and environmental and energy impacts.
The standards apply to all new, modified, and reconstructed metal coil surface coating (coil coating) operations. The standards reduce VOC emissions from a typical plant by approximately 33 percent in States that currently control VOC emissions by a numerical limit, and reduce VOC emissions from a typical plant by approximately 72 percent in States that adopt the control techniques guideline (CTG) recommended level of control. Implementation of the NSPS reduce VOC emissions by 8,820 tons per year (8,000 Mg/yr).
