Abstract:
On July 13, 1999, EPA amended its final air toxics rule for halogenated solvent cleaning operations, also known as "degreasers." Degreasers are sometimes used for cleaning purposes at industrial operations such as gasoline stations, machinery manufacturing, electrical equipment manufacturing, and computer and electronic equipment manufacturing. This action permanently exempts small batch cold cleaning machines that use halogenated solvents from the federal operating permit requirements (Part 71). For all other small halogenated solvent cleaning machines, EPA is deferring the federal operating permit requirements until December 9, 1999. This file is a fact sheet describing this rule.
