Abstract:
This rule establishes EPA's "generic MACT standards" program for setting national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) under the Clean Air Act (Act) for certain small source categories consisting of five or fewer major sources. As part of this generic MACT program, EPA is establishing an alternative methodology for making maximum achievable control technology (MACT) determinations for appropriate small categories by referring to previous MACT standards that have been promulgated for similar sources in other categories.
This consolidated rulemaking package includes promulgated MACT standards developed within the generic MACT framework for four specific source categories for which NESHAP are required: acetal resins (AR) production, acrylic and modacrylic fiber (AMF) production, hydrogen fluoride (HF) production, and polycarbonate(s) (PC) production. This fact sheet explains these four rules in "plain language".
