National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Polyvinyl Chloride and Copolymers Production

Abstract: This action promulgated National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) and Copolymers on 2/13/12. These standards were proposed on December 8, 2000 (65 FR 76958) and promulgated on July 10, 2002 (67 FR 45886) but were vacated by the D.C. Circuit on June 18, 2004 in Mossville Environmental Action v. EPA, 370 F.3d 1232 (D.C.Cir. 2004). This current action assures continuity of the parts of the standard that were upheld by the court, and addresses the component of these standards, regarding the use of vinyl chloride as a surrogate for all other HAP, that was not upheld by the court. Data that is gathered from this industry which will include an information request and source testing of the manufacturing process, will assist in compiling a list of HAP from PVC and copolymer production industry other than vinyl chloride; assessing control measures; determining whether using vinyl chloride as surrogate; and developing new standards for this source category.
