Abstract:
This action proposes national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) for cellulose products manufacturing. Cellulose products manufacturing includes both the Viscose Processes source category and the Cellulose Ethers source category. The Viscose Processes source category comprises the cellulose food casing, rayon, cellophane, and cellulosic sponge industries. The Cellulose Ethers source category comprises the methyl cellulose, hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose, hydroxypropyl cellulose, hydroxyethyl cellulose, and carboxymethyl cellulose industries. The EPA has identified the Viscose Processes source category and the Cellulose Ethers source category as including major sources of HAP emissions, such as carbon disulfide (CS2), carbonyl sulfide (COS), ethylene oxide, methanol, methyl chloride, propylene oxide, and toluene.
