EPA Proposed Rule on Emissions for Mineral Wool Production and Wool Fiberglass Manufacturing

Posted in on Tue, May 21, 2013

In a proposed rule and notice of public hearing, EPA has proposed chromium and particulate matter (for metals) standards for wool fiberglass gas-fired glass-melting furnaces at area sources and adds these sources to the category list in the Urban Air Toxics Strategy.  It also proposes amendments to the existing major source rules for Mineral Wool and Wool Fiberglass, supplementing the rule proposed on November 25, 2011. Comments are due May 30, 2013.  If anyone contacts the EPA requesting a public hearing by April 22, EPA will hold a public hearing on May 6, 2013.  http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-04-15/html/2013-07257.htm
