The calculation of volatile organic compound emissions from graphic arts operations to determine compliance is often a complicated task, sometimes creating confusion with compliance authorities and sources alike. In an attempt to minimize this confusion, EPA (OAQPS) has periodically issued guidance in this area, Generally in the form of memoranda to the EPA Regional Offices. EPA guidance for submitting data on ink formulations and performing basic calculations is contained in the document entitled, 'Procedures for Certifying Quantity of Volatile Organic Compounds Emitted by Paint, Ink and Other Coatings', EPA 450/3-84-019, published in December 1984. 'A Guideline for Graphic Arts Calculations' takes the above guidance process one step further. Example calculations are included for basic emission problems, compliance determinations, control strategy problems, and complex emission problems.
