Painting and Coating

Painting and coating processes often generate air and waste emissions that are regulated by state or Federal agencies. For air permitting, the sector is impacted by both area source and major source Maximum Achievable Technology Standards or MACTs. These MACT are in place due to National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants or NESHAP. The resources below include an EPA webinar and reource center as well as resources for specific  NESHAPs.

NESHAP HHHHHH or 6H - Often called the "autobody rule, this rule impacts facilities that paint mobile equipment including automobiles, trucks and aerospace. It is an area source rule and facilities are impacted if any of their paints used contain one of the five  metal HAPs regulated. These five metal HAPs are lead, chromium, cadnium, nickle and manganese. If the facility uses methylene chloride as a paint striper, it is also impacted, but methylene chloride has been targeted for elimination by EPA due to toxicity.
