National Emission Standards For Hazardous Air Pollutants; Benzene Emissions From Maleic Anhydride Plants, Ethylbenzene/Styrene Plants, Benzene Storage Vessels, Benzene Equipment Leaks, And Coke By-Product Recovery Plants, Proposed Rule, Federal Register July 28, 1988.
On December 8, 1987, the DC Circuit Court granted EPA's motion for a voluntary remand of the benzene equipment leak standard and the withdrawal of proposed standards for ethylbenzene/styrene and malic anhydride process vents in light of the same court's recent decision on the vinyl chloride standard. This notice represents EPA's reexamination of the benzene withdrawals and the benzene equipment leak standard.
Although some of the regulatory approaches proposed may be "major rules," EPA did not conduct an RIA. Section 8 of the court order waived the RIA because of the time constraint of the judicially-ordered schedule.
