EPA: National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutant Emissions from Miscellaneous Organic Chemical Processes.
The EPA intends to propose a single set of emission standards that will apply to more than 20 listed source categories of hazardous air pollutants (HAP). The Agency anticipates that these standards will also apply to organic chemical processes that have either been excluded from the applicability of emission standards developed for other source categories, or that have not been included within a listed source category.
