TITLE 326 AIR POLLUTION CONTROL BOARD

FINDINGS AND DETERMINATION OF THE COMMISSIONER
PURSUANT TO IC 13-14-9-7 AND SECOND NOTICE OF COMMENT PERIOD
LSA Document #09-221

DEVELOPMENT OF NEW RULES CONCERNING APPLICATION OF REASONABLY AVAILABLE CONTROL TECHNOLOGY (RACT) FOR VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUND (VOC) EMISSIONS FROM OFFSET LITHOGRAPHIC PRINTING AND LETTERPRESS PRINTING, INDUSTRIAL SOLVENT CLEANING OPERATIONS, AND MISCELLANEOUS INDUSTRIAL ADHESIVES


PURPOSE OF NOTICE
The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) has developed draft rule language for new rules in 326 IAC 8 for application of reasonably available control technology (RACT) to limit emissions of volatile organic compound (VOC) from offset lithographic printing and letterpress printing, industrial solvent cleaning operations, and miscellaneous industrial adhesives in ozone nonattainment counties. The purpose of this notice is to seek public comment on the draft rule, including suggestions for specific language to be included in the rule. IDEM seeks comment on the affected citations listed and any other provisions of Title 326 that may be affected by this rulemaking.



STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS
IC 13-14-9-7 recognizes that under certain circumstances it may be appropriate to reduce the number of public comment periods routinely provided. In cases where the commissioner determines that the rulemaking policy alternatives available to IDEM are so limited that the notice of first public comment period would provide no substantial benefit, IDEM may forgo this comment period and proceed directly to the notice of second public comment period.
If the commissioner makes the determination of limited rulemaking policy alternatives required by IC 13-14-9-7, the commissioner shall prepare written findings and include them in the second notice of public comment period published in the Indiana Register. This document constitutes the commissioner's written findings pursuant to IC 13-14-9-7.
The statute provides for this shortened rulemaking process if the commissioner determines that "the rulemaking policy alternatives available to the department are so limited that the public notice and comment period under (IC 13-14-9-3)... would provide no substantial benefit to:
(1) the environment; or
(2) persons to be regulated or otherwise affected by the proposed rule.".

BACKGROUND
Section 182(b)(2) of the Clean Air Act requires implementation of RACT for sources of VOCs in moderate ozone nonattainment areas, for which U.S. EPA has published a Control Technique Guideline (CTG). CTGs are used under U.S. EPA regulations to presumptively define RACT. Indiana is currently under a federal time clock that expires in September 2009 for implementing VOC RACT in counties that were designated as nonattainment for the 8-hour standard for ozone (85 ppb). States with moderate ozone nonattainment areas are also required to update existing VOC RACT regulations within one year of U.S. EPA issuing an updated CTG or before a county can be redesignated as attaining the standard. U.S. EPA has issued new CTGs for offset lithographic and letterpress printing, industrial solvent cleaning, and miscellaneous industrial adhesives. Adoption of VOC RACT rules updated with the most recent CTGs in Lake and Porter counties, both currently designated as moderate nonattainment areas, is necessary for amending the state implementation plan (SIP) to secure redesignation approval by U.S. EPA consistent with current federal regulations.
Although IDEM expects Lake and Porter counties to be redesignated as attainment by early 2010, there is no guarantee that the counties will in fact be redesignated. This is primarily due to uncertainty associated with the meteorological conditions from one ozone season to another. Therefore, sources need to be prepared to comply with the requirements of this rulemaking on April 1, 2011. However, it is IDEM's intention to repeal or amend these rules once Lake County and Porter County are redesignated as attainment for the 1997 8-hour standard for ozone (85 ppb). IDEM is currently in discussions with U.S. EPA in regards to available options for removing the rules as applicable regulations at which point these VOC RACT controls could become contingency measures in the maintenance plan. These VOC RACT rules were not part of the control measures that IDEM used to demonstrate redesignation of attainment. Redesignation could be effective in early 2010, which means that it is possible that these requirements may be repealed prior to the compliance date.
This proposed rulemaking adds VOC RACT rules in Article 8 consistent with the control recommendations in (that is, presumptive RACT) the applicable CTG for facilities located in Lake County and Porter County. IDEM is proposing that the new requirements from the revised CTGs for Lake County and Porter County facilities would be applicable on and after April 1, 2011. The CTGs are available on U.S. EPA's website at:
http://www.epa.gov/ttn/naaqs/ozone/ctg_act
U.S. EPA also issued new CTGs for automobile and light duty truck assembly coatings, paper coating, metal furniture coating, large appliance coating, miscellaneous metal and plastic parts coatings, flat wood paneling, and flexible package printing. While previously issued CTGs and alternative control technology (ACT) documents for aerospace manufacturing, industrial wastewater collection and treatment, synthetic organic chemical manufacturing industry (SOCMI), and batch process have not recently been updated by U.S. EPA, IDEM is proposing to adopt rules for these source categories since IDEM had not previously adopted rules for these categories. IDEM is addressing these rulemakings in separate rulemaking notices.
Offset Lithographic Printing and Letterpress Printing (326 IAC 8-16)
This CTG includes requirements to reduce VOC emissions stemming from the use of fountain solutions, cleaning materials, and inks in offset lithographic printing and cleaning materials and inks in letterpress printing. Offset lithographic printing is comprised of heat-set web, nonheatset web, and sheet-fed presses. The control requirements for cleaning materials and fountain solutions apply to lithographic and letterpress printing operations where the emissions associated with all aspects of that operation equal or exceed 15 pounds per day actual emissions of VOC (or the equivalent of three tons per 12 month rolling period). A different applicability threshold has been set for add-on control requirements that apply only to the heatset web offset subcategory of lithographic printing and letterpress printing. The applicability for add-on controls applies to larger sources with the potential to emit from the dryer, prior to controls, greater than or equal to 25 tons per year of VOC from heatset inks.
IDEM is currently trying to identify printing operations subject to this draft rule. At this time, IDEM has not identified any sources with the potential to emit greater than 25 tons per year VOC which are subject to the add-on control requirement. IDEM through the resources of a local printing association chapter has sent a survey to lithographic and letterpress printers in Lake County and Porter County to evaluate the impact of this rule on affected sources. This survey will help provide information to IDEM on whether affected sources can meet the alcohol content or alcohol substitutes VOC content limit for fountain solutions and the VOC content limit or vapor pressure requirement for cleaning materials. This rulemaking is primarily focused on lithographic printing since letterpress printing accounts for less than one percent of all commercial printing. This rulemaking adds new rule 326 IAC 8-16 and is based on the control recommendations in the CTG (EPA-453/R-06-002 September 2006).
Industrial Solvent Cleaning Operations (326 IAC 8-17)
This CTG includes requirements to reduce VOC emissions stemming from the use of VOC containing materials in solvent cleaning operations to remove contaminants, such as adhesives, inks, paint, dirt, soil, and grease. Contaminants are removed from spray booths, parts, products, tools, machinery, equipment, vessels (tanks), floors, walls, and other production work related areas. The draft rule applies to industries where emissions associated with solvent cleaning equal or exceed 15 pounds per day actual emissions of VOC (or the equivalent of three tons per 12 month rolling period). The CTG recommends that states exclude from applicability those cleaning operations in industry sectors already covered by a CTG listed for regulation under Section 183(e) of the Clean Air Act. IDEM is currently trying to identify solvent cleaning operations subject to this draft rule. The focus is on sources that apply ink and adhesives, because these sources are not already covered by a CTG that includes its own solvent cleaning requirements. This rulemaking adds new rule 326 IAC 8-17 and is based on the control recommendations in the CTG (EPA-453/R-06-001 September 2006) and Ohio's recently adopted rule for industrial solvent cleaning at Ohio Administrative Code 3745-21-23.
Miscellaneous Industrial Adhesive Application (326 IAC 8-22)
This CTG includes requirements to reduce VOC emissions from miscellaneous industrial adhesive application. The draft rule applies to each miscellaneous industrial adhesive application process at a facility where the total actual VOC emissions from all miscellaneous industrial adhesive application processes, including related cleaning activities, are equal to or exceed three tons per 12 month rolling period, before consideration of controls. The draft rule does not apply to field application of adhesives. While the OTC model rule for this source category was used as a reference to develop the draft rule language, applicability and control requirements are limited to those required by the CTG. IDEM is currently trying to identify miscellaneous industrial adhesive application operations subject to this draft rule. This rulemaking adds new rule 326 IAC 8-22 and is based on the control recommendations in the CTG (EPA-453/R-08-005 September 2008).
The rulemaking policy alternatives are limited for this rulemaking. This rulemaking is based on the control recommendations contained in U.S. EPA's CTG documents. Although state agencies developing RACT rules may elect control approaches that differ from those described in the CTG in practice, it is difficult to establish alternative control approaches that are approvable by U.S. EPA. Thus, options for varying from the control recommendations contained in the CTG are limited.
IC 13-14-9-4 Identification of Restrictions and Requirements Not Imposed under Federal Law
No element of the draft rule imposes either a restriction or a requirement on persons to whom the draft rule applies that is not imposed under federal law. This VOC RACT rule is necessary for IDEM to meet a Clean Air Act requirement. The applicable CTGs presumptively define RACT under U.S. EPA regulations. When a state submits a RACT rule that is consistent with the presumptive RACT, the state does not need to submit additional support to demonstrate that the rule meets the Clean Air Act's RACT requirement. Section 182(b)(2) of the Clean Air Act requires IDEM to adopt VOC RACT for CTG source categories where (as described herein) applicable sources are identified in nonattainment areas of a state in order to secure redesignation of such area.
Potential Fiscal Impact
Since this rulemaking addresses a Clean Air Act requirement, there are no additional costs beyond those already imposed under federal law. A summary of cost estimates provided by U.S. EPA in each of the CTG documents is provided below. The department is asking for information from affected sources on their ability to meet the requirements in these proposed rules and to help estimate the cost of compliance. At this time, IDEM anticipates that there will be some sources subject to these draft rules in Lake County and Porter County. Potentially affected sources have been identified for offset lithographic printing, industrial solvent cleaning, and miscellaneous industrial adhesives.
Offset Lithographic Printing and Letterpress Printing
Cost estimates contained in the federal CTG estimate that the add-on control requirements for heatset dryers are a total annual cost per facility ranging from $68,607 to $305,336 in 2005 dollars. Cost estimates for the cleaning material standards are estimated at a total annual cost per facility ranging from $599 to $32,815 in 2005 dollars. The high end of this range is based on a large newspaper model plant. The CTG did not include cost estimates for controlling VOC emissions from fountain solutions. The CTG considered compliance with the fountain solution VOC content and alcohol content limits a cost savings. Indiana has not identified any sources in Lake County and Porter County that will need to install add-on controls. The department is asking for information from affected sources on the ability to meet the fountain solution and cleaning material requirements to help estimate the cost of compliance with this rule.
Industrial Solvent Cleaning Operations
According to the CTG, U.S. EPA believes that affected sources may either incur minimal additional costs or realize a savings on a case by case basis when switching to low VOC or waterbased cleaning agents, depending primarily on factors such as how much a source currently spends to operate high VOC content solvent based parts cleaners and the cost of organic solvent disposal. The department is asking for information from affected sources on the ability to meet the VOC content limits in the draft rule for cleaning materials to help estimate the cost of compliance with this rule.
Miscellaneous Adhesive Application
According to the CTG, U. S. EPA assumes that all miscellaneous industrial adhesive application facilities will choose to utilize the low VOC adhesive materials alternative. Since facilities are meeting limits in states with regulations already, low-VOC adhesives that can meet the recommended control levels in this CTG are already available at a cost that is not significantly greater than the cost of adhesives with higher VOC contents. The use of add-on controls to reduce emissions from typical adhesive application processes is a more costly alternative. U.S. EPA estimates that the annualized cost for a facility to convert to waterborne adhesives is estimated to be $2,300 (in 1993 dollars) according to a 1993 Ventura County APCD Rule 74.20 Staff Report and the 1998 California ARB RACT determination. Using the producer price index for adhesive manufacturing and scaling the 1993 annualized cost to 2007, the estimated annualized cost is $3,356. The CTG considered compliance with the work practice standards a cost savings.

FINDINGS
The commissioner of IDEM has prepared written findings regarding rulemaking on offset lithographic and letterpress printing, industrial solvent cleaning operations, and miscellaneous industrial adhesives. These findings are prepared under IC 13-14-9-7 and are as follows:
(1) This rulemaking is based on the control recommendations contained in U.S. EPA's CTG documents that presumptively define RACT for particular industries. Although state agencies developing RACT rules may elect control approaches that differ from those described in the CTG in practice, it is difficult to establish alternative control approaches that are approvable by U.S. EPA. Thus, options for varying from the control recommendations contained in the CTG are limited. The control requirements contained in this draft rule are equivalent to those contained in the CTG which have already gone through public comment at the federal level. This notice will provide the opportunity to comment on how these control requirements will be implemented in Indiana.
(2) I have determined that under the specific circumstances pertaining to this rule, the rulemaking policy alternatives are so limited that the public notice and comment period provided in the notice of first public comment period would provide no substantial benefit to the environment or to persons to be regulated or otherwise affected by the rule.
(3) The draft rule is hereby incorporated into these findings.

326 IAC 8-16-3 Definitions

Authority: IC 13-14-18; IC 13-17-3-4; IC 13-17-3-11
Affected: IC 13-15; IC 13-17


Sec. 3. The following definitions apply throughout this rule:
(1) "Alcohol" means any of the following compounds, when used as a fountain solution additive for offset lithographic printing:
(A) Ethanol.
(B) n-Propanol.
(C) Isopropanol.
(2) "Alcohol substitute" means a nonalcohol additive that contains VOC and is used in the fountain solution. Some additives are used to reduce the surface tension of water, and others are added to prevent piling (ink buildup).
(3) "Automatic blanket wash system" means equipment used to clean lithographic blankets, which can include, but is not limited to, those utilizing a cloth and expandable bladder, brush, spray, or impregnated cloth system.
(4) "Batch" means a supply of fountain solution that is prepared and used without alteration until completely used or removed from the printing process. For purposes of this rule, the term may apply to solutions prepared in either discrete batches or solutions that are continuously blended with automatic mixing units.
(5) "Cleaning material" means a liquid solvent or solution used to clean the operating surfaces of a printing press and its parts. For purposes of this rule, the term includes, but is not limited to:
(A) blanket wash;
(B) roller wash;
(C) plate cleaner;
(D) metering roller cleaner;
(E) impression cylinder washes;
(F) rubber rejuvenators; and
(G) other cleaners;
used for cleaning a press, press parts, or to remove dried ink or coating from the areas around the press. For purposes of this rule, the term does not include cleaners used on electronic components of a press, prepress cleaning operations (for example, platemaking), postpress cleaning operations (for example, binding), cleaning supplies (for example, detergents) used to clean the floor (other than dried ink) in the area around a press, or cleaning performed in parts washers or cold cleaners.
(6) "Composite partial vapor pressure" means the sum of the partial pressures of the VOC compounds in a solvent.
(7) "Fountain solution" means a mixture of water and other volatile and nonvolatile chemicals and additives used in the lithographic printing operations that maintains the quality of the printing plate including preventing debris buildup (for example, spray power, paper fiber, coating particles, dried ink particles, and other materials), and increases viscosity and reduces the surface tension of the water so that it spreads easily across the printing plate surface. The fountain solution wets the nonimage area so that the ink is maintained within the image areas. Nonvolatile additives include mineral salts and hydrophilic gums. Alcohol and alcohol substitutes are the most common VOC additives used to reduce the surface tension of the fountain solution.
(8) "Fountain solution reservoir" means the collection tank that accepts fountain solution recirculated from the printing unit. In some cases, the tanks are equipped with cooling coils for refrigeration of the fountain solution.
(9) "Heatset" means a class of lithography that requires a heated dryer to solidify the printing inks.
(10) "Letterpress printing" means a printing process in which the:
(A) image area is raised relative to the nonimage area; and
(B) paste ink is transferred to the substrate directly from the image surface.
(11) "Lithographic printing" means a printing process where the image and nonimage areas are chemically differentiated. The image area is oil receptive, and the nonimage area is water receptive. This method differs from other printing methods where the image is a raised or recessed surface.
(12) "Nonheatset" means a class of printing that does not require a heated dryer to solidify the printing inks. Ultraviolet-cured and electron beam-cured inks are considered nonheatset.
(13) "Offset printing" means a printing process that transfers the ink film from the plate to an intermediary surface (blanket) that, in turn, transfers the ink film to the substrate.
(14) "Sheet-fed printing" means a printing process where individual sheets of substrate are fed into the press sequentially.
(15) "Web" means a lithographic printing process where a continuous roll of substrate is fed into a press.
