Abstract:
The EPA is proposing NESHAP for mercury cell chlor-alkali plants. The proposed standards would reduce nationwide mercury emissions from these sources by about 4,100 kilograms per year (9,100 pounds per year) from the levels allowed by the existing mercury NESHAP. Mercury is a neurotoxin that accumulates, primarily in the especially potent form of methylmercury, in aquatic food chains. This file is the text of the proposed rule.
