Abstract:
On Oct. 9, 2002, EPA issued a proposal to amend its rules for Electric Arc furnaces to allow bag leak detection (a method of monitoring for torn or leaking bags in the baghouse) coupled with daily observations of the clarity or "opacity" of air emissions from stacks as an alternative to a practice known as continuous opacity monitoring. The changes will not remove any of the rules' pollution control requirements, but will provide owners and operators more flexibility in complying with the rule while maintaining the environmental benefit. This file is the text of the proposed rule.
