Abstract:
The EPA is proposing a rule to reduce emissions of toxic air pollutants from refractory products manufacturing facilities. Refractory products are heat-resistant materials that provide the linings for high-temperature furnaces, reactors, and other processing units where extremes of temperature, corrosion, and abrasion would destroy other materials. The proposed rule would limit emissions of organic air toxics such as formaldehyde, polycyclic organic matter (POM), phenol, ethylene glycol, and methanol that occur during the manufacture of a number of different types of refractory products. The proposed rule would also limit emissions of hydrogen fluoride (HF) and hydrochloric acid (HCl) from new kilns during the manufacture of clay refractory products. This file is a fact sheet summarizing the proposed rule.
