Plan for reduced emissions



section 78 Of the operator of an activity covered by this

According to section 12 of the regulation does not choose to follow the

emission limits applicable to the activities referred to in

25 to 77 sections, the operator shall instead comply with a plan

reduced emissions of organic solvents.



The plan must be designed and adapted for business and

the plant activity is carried on.



The plan will involve the emission of organic solvents

from the activity decreases as much or more than what

would have been the effect of applying the

emission limits applicable to the activities referred to in

25-77 §§.



79 § in the case of a business where an organic solvent

used in the form of varnishes, adhesives or inks or for

coating should plan for reduced emissions mean



1. the reference value in the plan are used as

starting point to compare utsläppsminskningens size

According to paragraph 78, as far as possible

correspond to the emissions which would have resulted had no action for

reduced emissions had been taken, and



2. the reduction under the plan is permitted to take the longer

that is reasonable, given that replacement substances

contains no or only a small amount of organic

solvent are still under development.



If, having regard to the circumstances of the individual case

is not appropriate in a plan that meets the requirements of the first

paragraph and the regulator admits that an alternative

plan that meets the requirement in paragraph 78 should be followed.

organic solvents in an activity covered by section 79

anticipated a constant concentration of the substances that will be fixed when

the water or the volatile organic compounds are

evaporated, the reference value in the plan are used as

starting point to compare utsläppsminskningens size

According to paragraph 78 is calculated by



1. determine the total mass of solids in the annual

amount of ink, varnish or adhesive or other medium used

for coating (mass), and



2. multiply the value of mass



(a)) with 4, on the activities relating to gravure or flexography,

refers to the laminating or varnishing in a printing business, refer to

coating of textile surfaces, vävytor, folieytor, or

paper surfaces or refers to adhesive coating,

refinishing,



c) with 2.33, on the activities relating to the coating layers

come into contact with foodstuffs or coating

space technology, and



(d)) with 1.5, on activities relating to rotary screen printing or

other coating.



If the regulator admits it, may

multiplication factors in item 2 of the first paragraph is adjusted to

reflect shown increased efficiency as a result of the use

of solids.



81 section For an activity covered by section 80 shall plan for

reduced emissions mean a goal the reduction there

the target emission is determined by the reference value under 80 §

multiplied



1. the sum of 15 plus limit value of fugitive

emissions according to § 65 59 or, if the activity is subject to

any of those provisions,



2. the sum of 15 plus limit value of fugitive

emissions under section 66, second sentence, if the activity is subject to

by that provision, and



3. the sum of 5 plus the limit value for fugitive

emissions that apply to operations under 45, 48, 50, 51,

52, 56 or 57 or § § 67, first sentence, if the business

covered by any of the provisions.



82 section For an activity covered by a plan to reduce

emissions according to paragraphs 78 to 81 to the emission requirements under this

Regulation is considered fulfilled if the actual emissions of

organic solvents are not larger than the target emission

under section 80.



Substantial modification of a 2001 plant



83 section about it on a 2001 plant carried out an activity

the scope of this regulation and in any part of the

the plant made a change to lösningsmedelstillförseln so

that emissions of organic solvents significantly increases, the

the rules apply only to establishments, 2001

on the changed part only if emissions from the facility in

as a whole does not mean that more organic solvents

placed than what would have occurred if the changed part

would be anything other than a 2001 plant.



The assessment of whether an amendment should be regarded as essential to

be made based on the facts that apply when the plant

operated at the level of production as it is designed and

not during the time when the facility or such part of it as

impact on emissions is put into operation, is taken out of operation, is in

idle mode or maintenance. The change shall be considered as essential

If the maximum lösningsmedelstillförseln, counted as a

average over a day, leads to emissions of

organic solvents increases with



1. more than 25 percent, if the activities of the

plant



(a)) have a solvent consumption amounting to a maximum of 5

tonnes per annum and subject to section 73,



(b)) have a solvent consumption amounting to a maximum of 10

tonnes per annum and subject to 25, 27, 31, 35, 41, 43, 51, 59,

60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 68, 70, 74 or 75 §,



(c)) have a solvent consumption amounting to a maximum of 15

tonnes per annum and subject to section 66 or 67 46,,



d) have a solvent consumption equal to not more than 25


tonnes per annum and subject to 50, 52, 58, 56 or § or



e) have a solvent consumption amounting to no more than 1

000 tonnes per year and subject to section 37, or



2. more than 10 per cent, if the activities of the

the plant is not covered by the 1.



Dispenser

of this regulation relating to the limit values for diffuse

emissions, if



1. in the case of the establishment where the activities are carried out

is not technically and economically feasible to follow

limit value,



2. best available techniques used in business, and



3. a waiver cannot be expected to result in any significant risk

to human health or the environment.



section 85 the supervisory authority may waive the requirements of 66 and

67 § § in the case of shipbuilding, aircraft painting or

other activities, whether



1. it is not possible to use the organic

the solvents in an enclosed process,



2. it is not technically and economically feasible to

meet the requirements, and



3. the technology used is compatible with the requirements of Chapter 2. 3

and 7 of the environmental code.



86 § where the supervisory authority gives a dispensation according to 84 or 85

§, the authority shall inform the environmental protection agency of the dispensation.



Supervision



section 87 Of the environmental protection agency, the supervisory authority shall

send information to the environmental protection agency for each activity
