On October 6th, EPA proposed the National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Chemical Manufacturing Area Sources - denoted as the CMAS Rule (40 Part 63 Subpart VVVVVV) in the Federal Register (see Chemalliance story at http://www.chemalliance.org/news/news_detail.asp?StoryID=2292). EPA is under a court order to promulgate this rule by December 15, 2008. The rule is likely to affect facilities operating below major source thresholds for the following MACT / NESHAP standards.

  • Hazardous Organic NESHAP (HON) Rule - Subpart F
  • Pharmaceuticals Production - Subpart GGG
  • Pesticide Active Ingredient Production - Subpart MMM
  • Polymers & Resins Rules - Parts I, II, III & IV
  • Miscellaneous Organic NESHAP (MON) Rule - Subpart FFFF

The comment period for the proposed rule ends on November 5th, 2008.
