Abstract:
The EPA is promulgating NESHAP for existing and new asphalt processing and asphalt roofing manufacturing facilities. Asphalt processing is the "blowing" of air through hot asphalt in order to change the properties of the asphalt for use in certain applications such as roofing manufacturing or paving. The EPA has identified asphalt processing and asphalt roofing manufacturing facilities as major sources of hazardous air pollutants (HAP) such as formaldehyde, hexane, hydrogen chloride (HCl), phenol, polycyclic organic matter (POM), and toluene. The total HAP reduction resulting from compliance with the rule is expected to be 86 megagrams per year. This file is the text of the final rule.
