Economic Impact Analysis for the Proposed Notice of Reconsideration of the Final Halogenated Solvent Cleaners Residual Risk Standard.
The EPA has proposed to reduce the amount of risk associated with exposure to hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) such as methylene chlorine (MC), prechloromethylene (PCE), and trichloroethylene (TCE) from existing and new halogenated solvent cleaning machines. The proposed standard offers three options to revise these limits based on a finding that sufficent residual risk exists to warrant a tighter standard, and these options cover several industries not affected under the final rule published last year. These industries are aerospace manufacturing, narrow tube manufacturing, and industries with continuous web cleaners.
