South Coast Air Quality Management District, NPCA/FSCT argued that the SCAQMD's volatile organic compound (VOC) limits for architectural and industrial maintenance coatings did not meet the statutory requirements of being "best available retrofit control technology," or BARCT.
NPCA/FSCT claimed that the district was bound to follow BARCT criteria in setting clean-air technology requirements and that technology-based standards set by agencies must be based on the requirements of the underlying statute, which here require that technology be "available and feasible.
While the court ruled in favor of NPCA/FSCTs legal arguments, it also found that, except for quick dry enamels and rust-preventative coatings, the VOC limits for the rest of the coatings categories met the BARCT criteria; that is, the coatings were available and achievable.
