National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutant Emissions: Hard and Decorative Chromium Electroplating and Chromium Anodizing Tanks; Group I Polymers and Resins; Marine Tank Vessel Loading Operations; Pharmaceuticals Production; The Printing and Publishing Industry; and Steel Pickling--HCl Process Facilities and Hydrochloric Acid Regeneration Plants

 
Docket ID: EPA-HQ-OAR-2010-0600
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
Summary:
EPA received additional information after proposal which indicated the possibility of proposing a lower emission limit. A supplemental action was proposed 1/20/2012 which addressed those limits for six industrial source categories regulated by two National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP): Steel Pickling and Chromium Electroplating. The final rule tightened limits for hexavalent chromium emissions from hard and decorative chromium electroplating and chromium anodizing tanks by 30-50 percent.
