The document presents information on emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from a miscellaneous metal parts coating facility in Shelby County, Tennessee. The facility is reported to emit less than 25 tons per year of VOC. The results of the analysis are used to identify reasonably available control technology (RACT) for VOC emissions from miscellaneous metal parts coaters in Shelby County emitting or showing the potential to emit 25 tons per year or less of VOC. The following sections of the report briefly discuss emission sources, emission controls and costs, and operation of the miscellaneous metal parts coating facility. The control measures described in the document represent the presumptive norm or reasonably available control technology (RACT) that can be applied to existing miscellaneous metal parts coating facilities. Reasonably available control technology is defined as the lowest emission limit that a particular source is capable of achieving by application of a control technology that is reasonably available considering technological and economic feasibility. It may require technology that has been applied to similar, but not necessarily identical, source categories. It is not intended that extensive research and development be conducted before a given control technology can be applied to a source. However, short-term evaluation programs are considered an appropriate technology forcing aspect of RACT. The measures considered include: (1) use of add-on control equipment, (2) use of reformulated coatings, and (3) improved application methods.
