SCH Number 2014021049
- Proposed Amended Rule (PAR) 1130 - Graphic Arts
- PAR 1130 would partially implement Control Measure CTS-02- Further Emission Reductions from Miscellaneous Coatings, Adhesives, Solvents and Lubricants and the Reasonably Available Control Measures (RACM) Demonstration of Appendix VI, of the 2012 Air Quality Management Plan (AQMP). PAR 1130 would improve consistency with the United States Environmental Protection Agency's (U.S. EPA) Control Techniques Guidelines (CTG) for Offset Lithographic Printing and Letterpress Printing (EPA 453/R-06-002) and Flexible Package Printing (EPA 453/R-06-003) applicable to printing operations regulations by amending the overall add-on control device efficiency requirements and VOC content limits for fountain solutions. The proposed amendment further adds prohibition of storage of non-compliant VOC-containing materials at a worksite, removes obsolete rule language, updates definitions for consistency with other SCAQMD rules, adds an exemption for graphic arts materials that have a VOC content of no more than 10 g/L, as applied, and makes minor corrections and clarifications. Since affected facilities already comply with the proposed requirements, the proposed amendments are not expected to achieve additional VOC reductions.
