Abstract:
On February 26, 2004, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued final requirements to reduce toxic air emissions from stationary reciprocating internal combustion engines (RICE). These requirements apply to RICE used at facilities such as pipeline compressor stations, chemical and manufacturing plants, and power plants. The final rule will reduce emissions of a number of toxic air pollutants such as formaldehyde, acrolein, methanol, and acetaldehyde by 5,6000 tons in the fifth year after promulgation. These pollutants, also known as air toxics, are known or suspected to cause adverse health and environmental effects. This file is a fact sheet that summarizes the final rule.
