Objective of the amendments is to adopt certain provisions from the Ozone Transport Commission 2012 model rule for solvent degreasing. The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency has designated certain areas of Delaware in non-attainment of the federal standard for ground-level ozone.
Ground-level ozone is formed through the reaction of VOC and other compounds in the air in the presence of sunlight. High levels of ground-level ozone can cause or worsen difficulty in breathing, asthma and other serious respiratory problems. These amendments will reduce emissions of volatile organic compounds from solvent cleaning operations. Statements & testimony may be presented orally or in writing at public workshops. If you cannot attend or wish to submit your comments in advance, please submit comments in writing to Renae Held at firstname.lastname@example.org or via USPS to the Division of Air Quality, 100 West Water Street, Suite 6A, Dover, DE 19904. The Department will accept written comments postmarked (or emailed) no later than Thursday, February 14, 2020, unless a longer comment period is designated by DNREC staff.
