(3) Solvent washings.
All VOC emissions from solvent washings shall be considered in the emission limitations in sub. (2)
, unless the used wash solvent is directed into containers that prevent evaporation into the atmosphere.
(4) Internal offsets.
Coating operations subject to this section may not be involved in an internal offset under s. NR 425.05
(5) Work practices.
Beginning on March 1, 2013, the owner or operator of a facility subject to this subsection shall do all of the following:
Store all VOC-containing cleaning materials and shop towels used for cleaning in closed containers.
Ensure that storage containers used for VOC-containing materials are kept closed at all times except when depositing or removing material.
Convey VOC-containing cleaning materials in closed containers or pipes.
Minimize emissions of VOC during cleaning of coating application, storage, mixing, and conveying equipment by ensuring that cleaning is performed without atomizing any VOC-containing cleaning material and that the used material is captured and contained.
