This rule, published on June 21, 1990, established final standards limiting organic emissions from (1) process vents associated with distillation, fractionation, thin-film evaporation, solvent extraction, and air or steam stripping operations that manage hazardous wastes with 10 parts per million by weight (ppmw) or greater total organics concentration, and (2) leaks from equipment that contains or contacts hazardous waste streams with 10 percent by weight or greater total organics. These standards were proposed in the Federal Register on February 5, 1987 (52 FR 3748).
