Abstract:
EPA promulgated a rule to reduce emissions of toxic air pollutants from facilities that manufacture plywood and veneer; particleboard; medium density fiberboard; hardboard; fiberboard; oriented strandboard; and engineered wood products from the manufacturing of Plywood and Composite Wood Products by 11,000 tons per year. The final rule also creates and removes from the list a subcategory of low-risk facilities and puts eight specific facilities into the low-risk subcategory. This action also finalizes amendments to the effluent limitations guidelines for four subcategories of the timber industry (40 CFR part 429, subparts B, C, D, and M). This file is the text of the final rule.
