Frequent Questions

Where can I find National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs)? Where is the list of hazardous air pollutants?

 "The Clean Air Act requires EPA to regulate emissions of toxic air pollutants from a published list of industrial sources referred to as 'source categories.' As required under the Act, EPA has developed a list of source categories that must meet control technology requirements for these toxic air pollutants. The EPA is required to develop regulations (also known as rules or standards) for all industries that emit one or more of the pollutants in significant quantities. EPA developed implementation tools (eg. checklists, brochures) to help comply with the standards."
