35. The emission of volatile organic compounds into the atmosphere from the combined paint application activities of a light motor vehicle assembly plant may exceed the limit prescribed by section 27, provided that the volatile organic compound content of the paints applied does not exceed the limit set out in the following table for each type of paint application:

Type of paint application VOC emission limit values
(g/l of solids applied)

Electroplating bath 160

Primer coat spraying 1,400

Coat spraying including colour 1,890
and transparent part

For the purposes of this section, the volatile organic compound content is established according to the monthly weighted average composition of the volumes used for each type of paint. If a solvent, hardener or catalyst is mixed with the paint, the volatile organic compound content of the product must be included in the calculation of the average content of the paint used to determine its volatile organic compound content.
