This zipped file contains the text of a proposed rule and supplemental information on 1993 proposed National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for the Pulp and Paper Production Source Category. It also announces proposed additional sources in that source category not covered by the 1993 proposed standards. These additional sources include mechanical mills, secondary fiber mills, nonwood fiber mills, and paper machines. This action also announces availability of data for public review that is in addition to data previously announced in a February 22, 1995 Notice of Data Availability (60 FR 9813). In addition, this action announces the availability and requests comments on new emission factors developed using that data. This action sets forth the most significant changes EPA is considering, but is not inclusive of all changes likely to be made on the 1993 proposed NESHAP. EPA is still considering other comments submitted on the 1993 proposed NESHAP and will combin e them along with comments and data received on this action to form the basis for the promulgation of a final NESHAP later this year (1996). A proposed NESHAP for the chemical recovery area combustion sources at mills is not contained in this action, but will follow in a separate action later this year (1996).
Comments are requested only on information presented in this action. Comments must be received on or before April 8, 1996, unless a public hearing is requested by March 18, 1996. If a hearing is requested, written comments must be received by April 22, 1996. (120 KB in Wordperfect format)
