Abstract:
The EPA is promulgating NESHAP for processes within refractory facilities that emit organic air toxics include drying, curing, firing, pitch heating, shape preheating, defuming of pitch-impregnated shapes, and coking. Air toxics emitted during the manufacture of refractory products include methanol, formaldehyde, phenol, ethylene glycol, polycyclic organic matter (POM), chromium, hydrogen fluoride (HF), and hydrochloric acid (HCl). The final rule will reduce emissions of air toxics (formaldehyde, phenol, ethylene glycol, and POM), by 137 tpy-- a 50% reduction from 1996 levels and will reduce emissions of VOC by 182 tpy -- an 18% reduction from 1996 levels. This file is the text of the final rule.
