The report identifies Available Control Techniques (ACTs) for states to use as a reference when implementing Reasonable Available Control Technology (RACT) for graphic arts facilities that are covered by the Control Technologies Guidelines (CTGs), but emit less than 91 tonnes of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) per year. The CTGs for the graphic arts industry was published in December 1978. It defined RACT for VOCs emitted from publication and packaging rotogravure and from packaging flexography. Subsequent EPA guidance limited the applicability of RACT requirements to sources that emit 91 tonnes/yr or more of VOCs. The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 (CAAAs) now require RACT for VOC sources that emit as little as 9 tonnes/yr in extreme ozone nonattainment areas. Therefore, states are now required to establish and implement RACT for these smaller sources as well.
