Asphalt Processing and Asphalt Roofing Manufacture: New Source Performance Standards (NSPS)

Rule Summary

The intended effect is to require all new, modified, and reconstructed asphalt processing and asphalt roofing manufacturing facilities to use the best demonstrated system of continuous emission reduction considering costs, nonair quality health and environmental impacts, and energy, requirements.
