Proposed Regulations for Metal & Plastic Parts Surface Coating Processes

Feb 28, 2014

Pennsylvania DEP is proposing new regulations intended to control VOC emissions from miscellaneous metal parts surface coating processes, miscellaneous plastic parts surface coating processes and pleasure craft surface coatings.

The regulations are based on EPA's 2008 Control Techniques Guidelines for metal and plastic parts coatings.

DEP presented a powerpoint on the draft regulations at the February 20th Air Quality Technical Advisory Committee Meeting.

DEP expects to present the proposed rulemaking to the Environmental Quality Board in April or May, 2014. The public comment period is expected to be July - August, 2014, with the final rulemaking promulgated in May 2015.
