Abstract:
The zipped file contains 1 WordPerfect file. The PDF file allows viewing of the document as it appeared in the 9/26/96 Federal Register. Both files contain the Preamble and rule text for proposed national emission standards for new or existing potlines, paste production operations, and anode bake furnaces associated with primary aluminum reduction plants. The major hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) emitted by the facilities covered by this proposed rule include hydrogen fluoride (HF) and polycyclic organic matter (POM). Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are included in the chemical group POM. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons have been reported to produce carcinogenic, reproductive, and developmental effects as well as toxic effects on blood, the liver, eyes and the immune system. The proposed rule will result in a 50 percent reduction in fluoride and POM emissions from the current level of 11,000 tons per year (tpy); a substantial reduction in emissions of nonHAP pollutants, such as p articulate matter, also would be achieved. Applicability of the proposed standard is discussed in a section of the Preamble entitled Regulated Entities. (288kb in both files)
