IPPC, Annex VII - Technical provisions relating to organic solvents

EU. Emission Limit Values: Annex VII (installations & activities using organic solvents), Directive 2010/75/EU on Industrial Emissions (IPPC), 17 December 2010

This list contains emission limit values for polluting substances assigned according to installations and activities using organic solvents (Annex VII) under Directive 2010/75/EU on Industrial Emissions (Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control - IPPC).

Volatile organic compounds

3 Emission limit values for installations of the vehicle coating industry
00 'Volatile organic compound' means any organic compound as well as the fraction of creosote, having at 293,15 K a vapour pressure of 0,01 kPa or more, or having a corresponding volatility under the particular conditions of use

01 'Fugitive emissions' means any emissions not in waste gases of volatile organic compounds into air, soil and water as well as solvents contained in any products, unless otherwise stated in Part 2 of Annex VII

02 The total emission limit values are expressed in terms of grams of organic solvent emitted in relation to the surface area of product in square metres and in kilograms of organic solvent emitted in relation to the car body

03 For definition and calculation of the surface area see Annex VII, Part 3, Point 3 (Directive 2010/75/EU)

04 The total emission limit values refer to all process stages carried out at the same installation from electrophoretic coating, or any other kind of coating process, through to the final wax and polish of topcoating inclusive, as well as solvent used in cleaning of process equipment, including spray booths and other fixed equipment, both during and outside of production time

05 Vehicle coating installations below the solvent consumption thresholds mentioned in the table under point 3 shall meet the requirements for the vehicle refinishing sector set out in Part 2

06 For 'Reduction scheme', 'Emission monitoring', 'Solvent management plan' and 'Assessment of compliance with emission limit values in waste gases' see Annex VII, Parts 5, 6, 7 and 8 (Directive 2010/75/EU)

07 According to Art. 58, Chapter V 'Special provisions for installations and activities using organic solvents' (DIR 2010/75/EU): Substances or mixtures which, because of their content of volatile organic compounds classified as carcinogens, mutagens, or toxic to reproduction under Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, are assigned or need to carry the hazard statements H340, H350, H350i, H360D or H360F, shall be replaced if possible by less harmful substances or mixtures within the shortest possible time
