SGIA Submits Comments to New Jersey on Proposed VOC Control Rule

On February 27, 2017, SGIA submitted comments on New Jersey’s proposed VOC control rule, which proposes to adopt standards based on the recommendations of the EPA’s Industrial Cleaning Solvent Control Techniques Guidelines (CTG). SGIA attended a hearing held by the states’ Department of Environmental Protection earlier in February to express disagreement with certain parts of the rule. These comments follow-up on what was said during the hearing. Specifically, SGIA recommends that the department exempt digital printing operations from VOC control requirements and recordkeeping requirements. The Association also recommended some clarifying language to help ensure that businesses understand which period they need to track their purchases for. Prior to the proposed rulemaking, SGIA worked with the department to ensure that the proposed VOC content limit for cleaning solutions to clean screen printing equipment would be reasonable. SGIA commented in support of the proposed 500 gr/l (4.2 lb/gal) VOC content limit in this rule. Sign up to receive the most up-to-date regulatory and legislative information about specialty imaging.
