This report provides technical support for the development of the Illinois State Implementation Plan for surface coating industries, and more specifically, paper and can coating. A source testing program was conducted at three paper coating and two can coating facilities in Illinois to determine the efficiency of capture and destruction of volatile organic compounds (VOC) using either carbon adsorption or afterburner systems. At the paper coaters, the VOC collection efficiencies were 91-94%, but at the can coating plants, collection efficiency was undetermined. On the paper coating lines, two carbon adsorbers showed 79 and 98% control efficiency and a thermal afterburner was performing at 95% efficiency. The three afterburners at the can coating plants were controlling only 26 to 73% of the VOC's because operating temperatures were relatively low. EPA Method 25 was used to determine the VOC concentration in the vapor streams.
