Abstract:
The EPA is issuing a final rule to reduce toxic air pollutant emissions from metal can surface coating operations. Metal can surface coating operations include processes that coat metal cans or ends (including decorative tins) or metal crowns or closures during any stage of the can manufacturing process. Metal can surface coating operations emit a number of toxic air pollutants including ethylene glycol monobutyl ether (EGBE) and other glycol ethers, xylenes, and hexane. The final rule will reduce total emissions of air toxics by approximately 6,800 tons per year. This file is the text of the final rule.
