Abstract:
The EPA is promulgating NESHAP for cellulose products manufacturing. Cellulose products manufacturing includes both the Miscellaneous Viscose Processes source category and the Cellulose Ethers Production source category. The Miscellaneous Viscose Processes source category comprises the cellulose food casing, rayon, cellulosic sponge, and cellophane manufacturing industries. The Cellulose Ethers Production source category comprises the methyl cellulose, hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose, hydroxypropyl cellulose, hydroxyethyl cellulose, and carboxymethyl cellulose manufacturing industries. The final rule will reduce HAP emissions by approximately 1,600 megagrams per year (Mg/yr) (1,700 tons per year (tpy)) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) emissions by approximately 410 Mg/yr (450 tpy). This file is the text of the final rule.
