NOTICE OF PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD
 PUGET SOUND CLEAN AIR AGENCY
 Proposed Order of Approval No. 11660

Fluid Motion, LLC
17341 Tye St. SE
Monroe, WA 98272

The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency (the Agency) is publishing a public notice for a Notice of Construction Order of Approval for Fluid Motion, LLC in Monroe. Fluid Motion fabricates fiberglass boats in two coating booths at their existing facility. The boats are manually fabricated with open molds. Gel coat resin, vinlyester and polyester resins are applied to the molds to produce hulls, decks, and small parts. The proposed Order would remove existing facility-wide emission limits of combined styrene and methyl methacrylate emissions of 5 tons per year. The proposed Order would allow for an increase in production at the facility and would establish emission limits of 9.0 tons of styrene during any 12-month rolling period and 10 tons of total hazardous air pollutant (HAP) during any 12-month rolling period. 

The emissions associated with this project were evaluated and could total up to 9.0 tons/year styrene, 0.7 tons/year of methyl methacrylate, 10 tons/year total HAP and 10.1 tons/year of volatile organic compound (VOC). The 10.1 tons/year total VOC includes the styrene and methyl methacrylate emissions as well as 0.4 tons/year combined methyl ethyl ketone, n-hexane, xylene, toluene, cyclohexane, ethylbenzene, benzene and dimethyl ether emissions.

The Agency has completed a review of application No. 11660 and has made a preliminary determination that the proposal meets all the requirements of Regulations I, II and III and should be approved.
