The purpose of this public workshop is to educate the public and affected industry on the draft regulatory requirements under Section 17 of Regulation 1138 and to hear comments and recommendations to aid in the development of the formally proposed Delaware air toxics standard.
Congress sought to reduce health risks due to the exposure to hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) by mandating that EPA to identify at least 30 HAPs emitted from small sources that pose the greatest threat to public health, to identify types of sources that emit those 30 HAPs, & to promulgate standards to reduce the HAPs emissions & their associated health risks. In 1999, EPA published its list of HAPs; it included chromium (Cr) & manganese (Mn). In 2002, EPA added prepared feeds manufacturing, bringing its final list of types of sources to over 70. In 2010, EPA finalized their prepared feeds manufacturing standard to reduce the emissions of Cr & Mn. DAQâ€™s adoption of new regulatory requirements into Reg. 1138 will bring DEâ€™s air toxics regulations into closer alignment with EPAâ€™s national standards. The draft regulation is available on DAQâ€™s web site at http://www.dnrec.delaware.gov/whs/awm/Info/Regs/Pages/Section17.aspx & will also be provided at the workshop. ; 1. Review national air toxics regulatory history in general and area source air toxics regulatory history in detail 2. Review and discuss the regulatory requirements of the newly planned air toxics standard (Section 17) applicable to prepared feeds manufacturing facilities 3. Recognize the availability of newly developed Compliance Assistance tools 4. Receive any additional comments and recommendations
