General NESHAP Final Compliance Date September 1, 1998
NESHAP vs District Rules The NESHAP provides additional HAP reductions and enhanced compliance by self reporting
NESHAP vs District Rules The following substances are listed as federal HAP but are exempt from existing district VOC rules • 1,1,1- Trichloroethane • Perchloroethylene • Methylene Chloride
NESHAP vs District Rules Both the district breakdown rule and the NESHAP malfunction provision allow the source to continue operating while affecting repairs. EPA has traditionally opposed variances. Will the variance application and report delineating emission minimization during breakdown satisfy EPA’s malfunction plan requirements?
NESHAP vs District Rules District rules require new and existing sources meet the same limits. The NESHAP has stricter limits for reconstructions with a capital cost in excess of 50% of the cost of the facility. • District rules will likely be changed.
NESHAP vs SCAQMD Rule Spot stripping exemption South Coast 3 gal/day (1695 gal. of methylene chloride /yr) NESHAP less than 6 vehicles/year unlimited more than 6 vehicles/yr 26 gal/vehicle/yr (no limit on gal.)
NESHAP vs SCAQMD Rule Coatings exemption South Coast • Facilities using less than 3 gal/day of VOC containing coatings & solvents • Temporary markings • Aerosols NESHAP Containing less than 0.1% HAP & VOC or less than 1.0% non-carcinogens
NESHAP vs SCAQMD Rule Coatings VOC content exemption South Coast • 20 gal/yr of a coating provided facility uses less than 200 gal/yr combined • 10 gal/yr of adhesives NESHAP 50 gal/yr of any one coating provided facility uses less than 200 gal/yr combined
NESHAP vs SCAQMD Rule Coatings :VOC content & transfer efficiency exemption South Coast 1.5 gal/day for repair at military facility provided facility uses less than 5 gal/day combined NESHAP 0.1% HAP and VOC or 1.0% non-carcinogen
NESHAP vs SCAQMD Rule Controled Coatings South Coast • 86% Control (90% capture x 95% control) or • 50 ppm at exhaust NESHAP 81% Control
NESHAP vs District Rules No specific “minimize spills” provision in district rule. For handwipe cleaning district has “200 gms VOC” vs. compositional compliance or 60% volume reduction in NESHAP. No HAP limit in district VOC rules Districts will need to incorporate HAP limits for coatings and cleaning solvents. Likely handwipe limit will be less than 0.1% carcinogen & less than 1.0% non-carcinogenic HAP to qualify for exemption.
NESHAP vs District Rules For chemical milling maskants there is No commonality between rules. SCoast Chemical Milling & Chemical Processing 250g/l NESHAP Type I 622 g/l Type II 160g/l
NESHAP vs District Rules For “any alternative approved by the director” EPA has 180 days to decide. Districts suggest authority reverts to local district after 15 days.
