National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Major Sources: Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional Boilers and Process Heaters (Final)
Oct. 6, 2022
This action finalizes amendments to the national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) at major sources from new and existing industrial, commercial, and institutional (ICI) boilers and process heaters. Certain aspects of these standards were challenged and subsequently remanded to the Agency by the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit (D.C. Circuit). This action finalizes amendments to several numeric emission limits for new and existing boilers and process heaters consistent with the court's opinion and sets compliance dates for these new emission limits. This action also provides further explanation of one aspect of the Agency's use of carbon monoxide (CO) as a surrogate for organic hazardous air pollutants (HAP) and its use of a CO threshold to represent the application of the maximum achievable control technology (MACT) for organic HAP. We are also finalizing several technical clarifications and corrections. This final rule is effective on 5 December 2022.
