Abstract:
The EPA is issuing a final rule to control emissions of toxic air pollutants during hydrochloric acid (HCl) production. The final rule will affect new, reconstructed, and existing HCl production facilities located or built at a facility considered a major source of air toxics under the Clean Air Act. The rule will only apply to HCl production facilities that produce liquid HCl at a concentration of 30 percent by weight or greater. This final rule will limit toxic air emissions from process vents (HCl and chlorine), storage tanks (HCl), and transfer operations (HCl). Owners/operators of equipment with toxic air emissions from leaking equipment in HCl service will be required to prepare and operate according to an equipment leak detection and repair plan. This file is the text of the final rule.
