    The other two processes generate hazardous wastes containing mercury or asbestos. In the membrane process, the chlorine (at the anode) and the hydrogen (at the cathode) are kept apart by a selective polymer membrane that allows the sodium ions to pass into the cathodic compartment and react with the hydroxyl ions to form caustic soda. 76 FR , Proposed Rules, ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY (EPA), 40 CFR P [EPA-HQ-OAR; FRL] RIN AN99, National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants: Mercury Emissions From Mercury Cell Chlor-Alkali Plants, Part V, ACTION: Supplemental proposed rule.

This action proposes amendments to the national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) for mercury emissions from mercury cell chlor-alkali plants (Mercury Cell NESHAP).

On JEPA proposed amendments to this NESHAP in response to a petition for reconsideration filed by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). This action promulgates national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP), specifically mercury emissions, from mercury cell chlor-alkali plants.

The final rule limits mercury air emissions from these plants. The final rule implements section (d) of the Clean Air Act (CAA) which requires all categories and subcategories of. This action proposes national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) for mercury cell chlor-alkali plants.

The proposed standards would limit mercury air emissions from these plants. The proposed standards would implement section (d) of the Clean Air Act (CAA) which requires. national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) for mercury emissions from mercury cell chlor-alkali plants.

The primary piece of federal legislation governing the airborne release of mercury in the United States is the Clean Air Act. Unlike the criteria air pollutants, mercury is classified under the Act as a hazardous air pollutant and is thus subject to control under the National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP's) rather than the National Ambient Air Quality.

Mercury spills should be handled promptly and thoroughly.

It is the duty of the person that finds visible mercury to initiate cleanup immediately. Cleanup of mercury is only the first step; the cause and/or source should be identified and corrective.

Emission Standards for Sources of Asbestos Listed in Section 1 of this Rule IAC Applicability; incorporation by reference of federal. In the United States, the federal Clean Air Act identifies hazardous air pollutants to be regulated. “National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants” (NESHAPS) have been established for industries emitting the listed pollutants and generally require the use of “Maximum Achievable Control Technology” (MACT).

For example, in the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants: Mercury Emissions from Mercury Cell Chlor-Alkali Plants, the cost effectiveness was found to be between $13, to $31, per pound of Hg emissions reduced for the individual facilities (see Supplemental proposed rule, 76 FR (Ma )).Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Source Categories.
