Ill. Admin. Code tit. 35, § 218.204 - Emission Limitations

Current through Vol. 46, No. 16, April 15, 2022

Except as provided in Sections 218.205, 218.207, 218.208, 218.212, 218.215 and 218.216 of this Subpart, no owner or operator of a coating line shall apply at any time any coating in which the VOM content exceeds the following emission limitations for the specified coating. Except as otherwise provided in subsections (a), (c), (g), (h), (j), (l), (n), (p), and (q) of this Section, compliance with the emission limitations marked with an asterisk in this Section is required on and after March 15, 1996, and compliance with emission limitations not marked with an asterisk is required until March 15, 1996. The following emission limitations are expressed in units of VOM per volume of coating (minus water and any compounds which are specifically exempted from the definition of VOM) as applied at each coating applicator, except where noted. Compounds which are specifically exempted from the definition of VOM should be treated as water for the purpose of calculating the "less water" part of the coating composition. Compliance with this Subpart must be demonstrated through the applicable coating analysis test methods and procedures specified in Section 218.105(a) of this Part and the recordkeeping and reporting requirements specified in Section 218.211(c) of this Subpart except where noted. (Note: The equation presented in Section 218.206 of this Part shall be used to calculate emission limitations for determining compliance by add-on controls, credits for transfer efficiency, emissions trades and cross-line averaging.) The emission limitations are as follows:

A) Electrodeposition primer (EDP) operations. For purposes of this subsection (a)(2)(A), "electrodeposition" means a water-borne dip coating process in which opposite electrical charges are applied to the substrate and the coating. The coating is attracted to the substrate due to the electrochemical potential difference that is created.

A) For purposes of subsection (j)(5) of this Section, the following terms are defined:
i) "Corrosion resistant basecoat" means, for purposes of subsection (j)(5)(B)(ii) of this Section, a water-borne epoxy coating applied via an electrodeposition process to a metal surface prior to spray coating, for the purpose of enhancing corrosion resistance.
ii) "Electrodeposition process" means, for purposes of subsection (j)(5) of this Section, a water-borne dip coating process in which opposite electrical charges are applied to the substrate and the coating. The coating is attracted to the substrate due to the electrochemical potential difference that is created.
iii) "Marine engine coating" means, for purposes of subsection (j)(5) of this Section, any extreme performance protective, decorative or functional coating applied to an engine that is used to propel watercraft.
B) For purposes of subsection (j)(6) of this Section, "metallic coating" means a coating which contains more than 1/4 lb/gal of metal particles, as applied.

BOARD NOTE: On and after May 1, 2012, the limitations in Section 218.204(q) shall apply to this category of coating.

1) 0.25 kg VOM/1 of coatings (2.1 lb VOM/gal coatings); or
2) 0.35 kg VOM/1 solids (2.9 lb VOM/gal solids).
q) Miscellaneous Metal Parts and Products Coatings and Plastic Parts and Products Coatings On and After May 1, 2012. On and after May 1, 2012, the owner or operator of a miscellaneous metal or plastic parts coating line shall comply with the limitations in this subsection (q). The limitations in this subsection (q) shall not apply to aerosol coating products, powder coatings, or primer sealants and ejection cartridge sealants used in ammunition manufacturing. Primer sealants and ejection cartridge sealants shall instead be regulated under Subpart TT of this Part.
1) Metal Parts and Products. For purposes of this subsection (q)(1), "corrosion resistant basecoat" means a water-borne epoxy coating applied via an electrodeposition process to a metal surface prior to spray coating, for the purpose of enhancing corrosion resistance. The limitations in this subsection (q)(1) shall not apply to stencil coats, safety-indicating coatings, solid-film lubricants, electric-insulating and thermal-conducting coatings, magnetic data storage disk coatings, and plastic extruded onto metal parts to form a coating. The limitations in Section 218.219, however, shall apply to these coatings unless specifically excluded in Section 218.219.

2) Plastic Parts and Products: Miscellaneous. For purposes of this subsection (q)(2), miscellaneous plastic parts and products are plastic parts and products that are not subject to subsection (q)(3), (q)(4), (q)(5), or (q)(6) of this Section. The limitations in subsection (q)(2) shall not apply to touch-up and repair coatings; stencil coats applied on clear or transparent substrates; clear or translucent coatings; coatings applied at a paint manufacturing facility while conducting performance tests on the coatings; any individual coating category used in volumes less than 189.2 liters (50 gallons) in any one calendar year, if the total usage of all such coatings does not exceed 756.9 liters (200 gallons) per calendar year per source and substitute compliant coatings are not available; reflective coatings applied to highway cones; mask coatings that are less than 0.5 mm thick (dried) if the area coated is less than 25 square inches; electromagnetic interference/radio frequency interference (EMI/RFI) shielding coatings; and heparin-benzalkonium chloride (HBAC)-containing coatings applied to medical devices if the total usage of all such coatings does not exceed 378.4 liters (100 gallons) per calendar year per source. The limitations in Section 218.219, however, shall apply to such coatings unless specifically excluded in Section 218.219.
