    control techniques for mercury emissions from extraction and chlor-alkali plants 1. INTRODUCTION The hazardous nature of mercury has been known for centuries. Mercury is hazard- ous to public health chiefly because of its interference with the central nervous system. A. Except as modified in this Section and specified below, National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Source Categories, published in the Code of Federal Regulations at 40 CFR Part 63, July 1, , and specifically listed in the following table, are hereby incorporated by reference as they apply to area sources in the state of Louisiana.

    Reference: Numbers in the list refer to sections of the Clean Air Act and regulations at 40 CFR. Reference Test Methods / CEM Performance Specifications are also included where specified. National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Source Categories (a.k.a. Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT)) The following numbers indicate only if rule text and/or historic rule opinions are available for the respective subpart, and explain why flowcharts and requirement reference table (RRT) are not included.

    Area source of hazardous air pollutants: The term "area source" refers to facilities that release smaller quantities of toxic air pollutants. Although emission from one area source may be relatively small, multiple area sources concern environmental specialists, especially . hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP), specifically mercury emissions, from mercury cell chlor-alkali plants. The final rule will limit mercury air emissions from these plants. The final rule will implement section (d) of the Clean Air Act (CAA) which requires all categories and subcategories of major sources and area sources listed under.

Rule Summary. 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.

• The final rule reduces mercury and other toxic air emissions from mercury cell chlor-alkali plants that are considered “major sources” of hazardous air pollutants as well as facilities considered to be “area sources.” • Area sources are those sources that emit less than 10 tons annually of a single hazardous air.

[United States. Environmental Protection Agency. Emission Standards Division.; United States. Environmental Protection Agency. Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards.]. Eight mercury cell chlor-alkali plants use sodium chloride brine, two use potassium chloride brine, and two plants use both types of brines in different mercury cell circuits.

Due to contact of brine and mercury, mercury is present in the brine system in its molecular form as dissolved mercuric chloride. emissions from their Augusta, GA, facility, in collaboration with other members of the Chlorine Institute representing the active chlor-alkali plants in the United States.
