Control techniques guidelines (CTG) are issued for the control of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from certain polymer manufacturing plants to inform Regional, State, and local air pollution control agencies of reasonably available control technology (RACT) for development of regulations necessary to attain the national ambient air quality standards for ozone. This document contains information on VOC emissions and the costs and environmental impacts of RACT in polypropylene liquid-phase process plants, high-density polyethylene slurry process plants and polystyrene continuous process plants.
