ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY
40 CFR Part 63
[EPA–HQ–OAR–2010–0600; ]
RIN 2060–AO91
National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutant
Emissions: Group I Polymers and Resins; Marine Tank Vessel
Loading Operations; Pharmaceuticals Production; and The Printing
and Publishing Industry
AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
ACTION: Final rule.
SUMMARY: EPA is taking final action for four national emission
standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) that regulate 12
industrial source categories evaluated in our risk and
technology review. The four NESHAP include: National Emissions
Standards for Group I Polymers and Resins (Butyl Rubber
Production, Epichlorohydrin Elastomers Production, Ethylene
Propylene Rubber Production, HypalonTM Production, Neoprene
Production, Nitrile Butadiene Rubber Production, Polybutadiene
Rubber Production, Polysulfide Rubber Production, and Styrene

Butadiene Rubber and Latex Production); Marine Tank Vessel
Loading Operations; Pharmaceuticals Production; and The Printing
and Publishing Industry.
For some source categories, EPA is finalizing our decisions
concerning the residual risk and technology reviews. For the
Marine Tank Vessel Loading Operations NESHAP and the Group I
Polymers and Resins NESHAP, EPA is finalizing emission standards
to address certain emission sources not previously regulated
under the NESHAP. EPA is also finalizing changes to the
Pharmaceuticals Production NESHAP to correct an editorial error.
For each of the four NESHAP, EPA is finalizing revisions to the
regulatory provisions related to emissions during periods of
startup, shutdown, and malfunction and promulgating provisions
addressing electronic submission of emission test results.
DATES: This final action is effective on [INSERT DATE OF
PUBLICATION].
