Compliance Options Diagrams for the Paper and Other Web Coating National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP)

This January 2004 document contains 14 diagrams illustrating the different compliance options available for those facilities that fall under the Paper and Web Coating Maximum Achievable control Technology (MACT).

The Paper and Other Web Coating (POWC) MACT contains more than one option for compliance, each resulting in different monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements. The Compliance Options Diagrams were developed as a road map for affected facilities or regulatory agencies to use to help them understand the applicable requirements associated with each option.

For more information on the rule, visit the regulation page for Paper and Other Web Coating: National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP).
