National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Major Sources: Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional Boilers and Process Heaters; Amendments (Draft)
Aug. 24, 2020
On 31 January 2013, EPA finalized amendments to NESHAP for the control of HAP at major sources from new and existing industrial, commercial, and institutional (ICI) boilers and process heaters.US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, in July 2016, remanded several of the emission standards to the EPA based on the court's review of the EPA's approach to setting those standards. Action proposes to amend several numeric emission limits for new and existing boilers and process heaters consistent with the court's opinion and set compliance dates for these new emission limits. The court remanded a decision in March 2018, the Agency's use of a CO threshold to represent the application of the MACT for organic HAP. Proposed changes to the emissions limits will protect air quality and promote public health by reducing emissions of the HAP listed in the CAA. Addresses the remanded. EPA is proposing several technical clarifications and corrections. Comments must be received on or before 23 October 2020. For questions about this proposed action, contact Mr. Jim Eddinger, Sector Policies and Programs Division (D243-01), Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina 27711; tel: (919) 541-5426; and email: eddinger.jim@epa.gov.
