Abstract RACT requirements for perchloroethylene (perc) drycleaners require that the owner or operator vent the dryer exhaust through a carbon adsorption system or equally effective control device and emit no more than 110 ppm of VOC from the control system. A recent inventory of drycleaning establishments indicates that approximately 10,000 facilities are located in nonattainment areas and must comply with this RACT requirement. Because emission testing of each source would be a formidable task for federal, state, and local EPA personnel, a compliance documentation method that would reduce enforcement effort is needed. This report provides a compilation of control equipment manufacturers' recommendations of combinations of adsorbers and perc drycleaning equipment to comply with RACT regulations. The recommended combinations, however, may have to be adjusted based on source testing of the various configurations.
