EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AP84 Publication ID: Spring 2010 
Title: NESHAP Standard Standards for Petroleum Refineries--Heat Exchangers 
Abstract: Under the Clean Air Act (CAA) section 112(d)(6), EPA is required to review standards issued under section 112 and to revise them "as necessary (taking into account developments in practices, processes and control technologies)" no less frequently than every 8 years. EPA also must evaluate the Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standards within 8 years after promulgation and promulgate standards under CAA section 112 (f)(2) if required to provide an ample margin of safety to protect public health or prevent an adverse environmental effect. We are currently reviewing our existing standards and also the underlying rules that are often referenced by these standards. As a result of this review, we have noted the need to consolidate rule requirements, and to update control requirements based on the risk and technology reviews under both sections 112 and 111. Additionally, we recognize that most chemical and refinery sector operations have similar emission sources that are often required to be controlled to the similar levels by the same type of control devices and work practice standards, although on a piecemeal fashion such that the requirements may differ slightly from source to source without any tangible environmental benefits. We are therefore developing a limited number of rules (standard standards) that are consistent and that can be applied to numerous sources in the chemicals and refining sector. This effort will consist of developing the heat exchanger standard, including developing control options to address technology review under both 112 and 111; addressing the control of VOC, HAP, and other pollutants, as appropriate; and estimating the impacts of regulatory options, emission reductions, impacts on risk, costs, cost effectiveness, and economic impacts for the refining and chemicals sector.
