Title: ●National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants From Portland Cement Manufacturing Amendments 
Abstract:

EPA will propose amendments to the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) from Portland Cement Manufacturing (Portland Cement NESHAP), to clarify the intent of the provisions applying to previously idled cement kilns in the 2018 Portland Cement NESHAP Risk and Technology Review final rule published on July 25, 2018 (80 FR 54728). The 2018 final rule included provisions that allow facilities 180 days to demonstrate compliance with the rule if a cement kiln was idle during the required compliance testing period. The provisions allow facilities 180 days to demonstrate compliance once that kiln is brought back online ("idle kiln provision"). On September 21, 2018, Sierra Club and two community groups submitted a petition for reconsideration of the 2018 final rule. The petition identified three issues, one of which pertained to the idle kiln provision. The petitioners believe that the idle kiln provision allows for affected facilities to potentially avoid demonstrating compliance by continually idling their cement kiln. On July 18, 2019, EPA granted reconsideration of the idle kiln provision. Specifically, in this action EPA intends to address several components of the 2018 final rule idle kiln provision to ensure the rule only targets the intended affected sources.
