National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants: Generic Maximum Achievable Control Technology Standards; and Manufacture of Amino/Phenolic Resins
This action finalizes the residual risk and technology review (RTR) conducted for the Acrylic and Modacrylic Fibers Production, Amino/Phenolic Resins Production and Polycarbonate Production source categories regulated under national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP). In addition, we are taking final action addressing emissions during periods of startup, shutdown and malfunction, and are adding standards for previously unregulated hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions sources for certain emission points. These changes include revisions made in response to comments received on the proposed rule. These final amendments also include clarifying provisions pertaining to open-ended valves and lines, adding monitoring requirements for pressure relief devices and adding requirements for electronic reporting of performance test results, as proposed. We estimate that these final amendments will reduce HAP emissions from these three source categories by a combined 137 tons per year.
Requirements for the Recognizing Aviation and Aerospace Innovation in Science and Engineering Awards; Deadline Extension
Pursuant to a recommendation by the Future of Aviation Advisory Committee, the Secretary of Transportation is announcing the third-annual competition to recognize students with the ability to demonstrate unique, innovative thinking in aerospace science and engineering. In its third year, the Secretary has decided to create two divisions within the award: A high school division and a university division (both undergraduate and graduate). The Secretary of Transportation intends to use the awards to incentivize students at high schools and universities to think creatively in developing innovative solutions to aviation and aerospace issues, and to share those innovations with the broader community. This notice extends the deadline for submitting proposals for the RAISE Award and makes other small changes to the prior notices issued in April (79 FR 19167) and May (79 FR 29476) 2014. The Department of Transportation has decided that interested students could benefit from more time to develop proposals for the 2014 competition. Thus, we are extending the dates for submitting expressions of interest to November 14, 2014, and for submitting final packages to 3:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on December 30, 2014.
