National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants: Reinforced Plastic Composites Production
Document Number: 05-16701
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-08-25
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The EPA is taking direct final action on amendments to the national emissions standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) for reinforced plastic composites production which were issued April 12, 2003, under section 112 of the Clean Air Act (CAA). The direct final amendments revise compliance options for open molding, correct errors, and add clarification to sections of the rule. We are issuing the amendments as a direct final rule, without prior proposal, because we view the revisions as noncontroversial and anticipate no adverse comments. However, in the Proposed Rules section of this Federal Register notice, we are publishing a separate document that will serve as the proposal to amend the NESHAP for reinforced plastic composites production if adverse comments are filed.
National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants: Reinforced Plastic Composites Production
Document Number: 05-16700
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-08-25
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
On April 12, 2003, the EPA issued national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) for reinforced plastics composites production, which were issued under section 112 of the Clean Air Act (CAA). This action will amend the final rule to revise compliance options for open molding, correct errors, and add clarifications to sections of the rule that were not clear. In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, we are taking direct final action on the proposed amendments because we view the amendments as noncontroversial and anticipate no adverse comments. We have explained our reasons for the amendments in the direct final rule. If we receive no adverse comments, we will take no further action on the proposed amendments. If we receive adverse comments, we will withdraw only those provisions on which we received adverse comments. We will publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register indicating which provisions will become effective and which provisions are being withdrawn. If part or all of the direct final rule in the Rules and Regulations section of today's Federal Register is withdrawn, all comments pertaining to those provisions will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on the proposed amendments. We will not institute a second comment period on the subsequent final action. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time.
