Abstract:
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is amending its final rule to regulate hazardous air pollutant emissions from halogenated solvent cleaning operations. The original rule was issued on December 2, 1994. Hazardous air pollutants, also known as air toxics, are pollutants which are known or suspected to cause cancer or other serious health effects, such as birth defects or reproductive effects.

These amendments add compliance alternatives and associated compliance demonstration requirements for continuous web cleaning machines. In addition, EPA has clarified the requirements for cleaning of transformers laden with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) and for steam-heated vapor cleaning machines.

THE CORRECT DATE COMPLIANCE DATE FOR THESE NEW REQUIREMENTS SHOULD READ DECEMBER 2, 1999 (PAGE 45191).
