Title: ●Protection of Stratospheric Ozone: Standards Related to Feedstock Production of Class II Ozone-Depleting Substances 
Abstract:

This rulemaking will address continued production of class II ozone-depleting substances for use as feedstock to ensure byproduct emissions of HFC-23 are destroyed to the extent practicable. EPA has previously phased out production of class II substances with limited exemptions. Given one of these exemptions is for feedstock production and continues indefinitely, EPA would set a limit that would address byproduct emissions of HFC-23 (a substance with a very high global warming potential). EPA is proposing that as compared to the amount of chemical intentionally produced on a facility line, the HFC-23 created as a byproduct on the line must be destroyed to the extent practicable using a technology approved by EPA.
