Pennsylvania to Control Emissions from the Use of Adhesives, Sealants, Primers, and Solvents
Posted: April 28th, 2009Author: All4 Staff
The Pennsylvania Environmental Quality Board (EQB) has proposed regulations that would control emissions from the use of adhesives, sealants, primers, and solvents. The proposed rulemaking would regulate the owner or operator of a facility or stationary source that uses or applies a regulated adhesive, sealant, adhesive primer, or sealant primer product. Emission standards and volatile organic compound (VOC) content limits have been proposed for the industrial or commercial use or application of 37 adhesive, sealant, adhesive primer, or sealant primer product categories, and adhesive or sealant products applied to particular substrates. Requirements for the use of surface preparation solvents and cleanup solvents are also included.
Also proposed are emission standards and VOC content limits for the sale, supply, offer for sale, manufacture, use, or application of 37 adhesive, sealant, adhesive primer, and sealant primer product categories; adhesive and sealant products applied to certain substrates; and surface preparation solvents and cleanup solvents. These requirements would apply to anyone who sells, supplies, offers for sale, or manufactures for sale an adhesive, sealant, adhesive primer, sealant primer, surface preparation solvent, or cleanup solvent product for industrial or commercial use or application in Pennsylvania. The requirements will also apply to anyone who uses or applies, for compensation, an adhesive, sealant, adhesive primer, or sealant primer product; adhesive or sealant products applied to particular substrates; or a surface preparation solvent or cleanup solvent products in Pennsylvania.
