July 14, 1997

 

Dear Sir or Madam:

On February 28, 1997, the Air Resources Board (ARB) made available for review the "Draft Proposed Determination of Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) and Best Available Retrofit Control Technology (BARCT) for Adhesives and Sealants" (adhesives RACT / BARCT determination). The determination proposes volatile organic compound limits for adhesives and sealants used in commercial and manufacturing processes. The adhesives RACT / BARCT determination is being developed by the ARB and the Adhesives Committee of the California Air Pollution Control Officers Association (CAPCOA Adhesives Committee).

The ARB received several comments on various aspects of the draft adhesives RACT / BARCT determination. We also received several comments requesting that we hold a public workshop to discuss the draft RACT / BARCT determination. Therefore, we have scheduled a workshop at which the Adhesives Subcommittee will discuss the draft RACT / BARCT determination and comments received regarding the draft determination.

The public workshop will be held as follows:

  Date: Tuesday, August 19, 1997
  Time: 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
  Location: California Air Resources Board
2020 L Street
Board Hearing Room
Sacramento, California  95814

The ARB building is accessible to persons with disabilities. Persons needing reasonable accommodations may contact Ms. Sue Pinto, American with Disabilities Act Coordinator, at (916) 322-4505 for assistance.

Enclosed is a tentative agenda for the workshop. If you have questions about the workshop, or to request a copy of the adhesives RACT / BARCT determination you may contact Mr. Jose Gomez, Air Resources Engineer at (916) 327-1502 or by e-mail at jgomez@arb.ca.gov.
