The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is issuing a proposed regulation to reduce the emission of air toxics to the atmosphere from the manufacture of amino and phenolic resins. Air toxics, also referred to as hazardous air pollutants, are those pollutants that are either known or suspected to cause cancer or other serious health effects.
Amino and phenolic resins are used in the manufacture of plywood, particle board, adhesives, plastic parts, and other products.
