Abstract:
This action proposes national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants, (NESHAP) for the Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) and Copolymers Production source category. These proposed standards require that PVC and copolymers production facilities, which already must comply with the existing Vinyl Chloride NESHAP, continue to comply with that existing rule. This proposed rule reflects EPA's determination that the hazardous air pollutants (air toxics) control level resulting from compliance with the existing Vinyl Chloride NESHAP already reflects the application of maximum achievable control technology (MACT), thereby meeting the requirements of section 112(d) of the Clean Air Act for the PVC and Copolymers Production source category. EPA has determined that this source category includes facilities that are major sources of air toxics, including vinyl chloride, vinylidene chloride (1,1 dichloroethylene), and vinyl acetate.
