The document presents information on emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from offset lithography facilities in Shelby County, Tennessee. Information is presented on the industry, emissions from offset press operations, emission control techniques, and the costs of reducing emissions. The control measures described in the document represent the presumptive norm or reasonably available control technology (RACT) that can be applied to existing offset lithography plants. Reasonably available control technology is defined as the lowest emission limit that a particular source is capable of achieving by application of 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 the source. However, short-term evaluation programs are considered an appropriate technology forcing aspect of RACT.
