New Source Performance Standards Review for Secondary Lead Smelters (Draft)
Dec. 5, 2022
EPA is proposing amendments to the Standards of Performance for secondary lead smelters per the Agency's periodic review of the new source performance standards required by the CAA. In this action, they are proposing updates to the current NSPS for secondary lead smelters and proposing a new NSPS subpart that applies to affected sources constructed, reconstructed, or modified after the date of this proposed rule. For the current NSPS subpart, they are proposing to revise the definitions of blast furnace, reverberatory furnace, and pot furnace to more closely align with the equipment definitions used in the NESHAP for secondary lead smelting. They are also proposing requirements for periodic performance tests for PM and incorporating revised monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements, including electronic reporting of performance tests, to be more consistent with the NESHAP. Please read full text for additional subpart proposals. Comments must be received on or before 17 January 2023.
