Facilities of this category shall establish a solvent management plan in order to setup a reduction strategy. Solvent losses shall be reduced in accordance with BAT limiting these losses to not more than 30% of the solvent input as a general rule. Actual reduction targets and their time frame shall be set on a case-by-case basis using the results of a mass balance exercise as outlined in the guidance document on fugitive emission control.

FOURTEENTH SCHEDULE (Regulation 18) EMISSION STANDARDS FOR HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES 1. In the case of emissions originating from incineration or fuel burning the oxygen content in the emission shall not be less than 3%. Gaseous and vaporous organic compounds shall be indicated as total organic carbon. The limit values shall be measured periodically. As to an occurrence of substances of one category belonging to different classes, the cumulation rule shall apply. The cumulation rule means that: (i) The total emission standards of class (2) may not be exceeded if substances of classes (1) and (2) occur simultaneously in waste gas (ii) The emission standards of class (3) may not be exceeded as a total if substances of classes (1) and (3), of classes (2) and (3) or of classes (1) to (3) occur simultaneously in waste gas. 5. A list of the most relevant substances in each category is given below. However, the substances falling under a certain category are not limited to those listed in this schedule.
