Coke Oven By-Product Recovery Plants: National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP)
On this page:
The coke oven by-product plant is an integral part of the by-product coke-making process, which results in the making of a liquid condensate stream and gas stream. These two streams are processed to recover by-product coal chemicals and to condition the gas, so that it can be used as fuel. Coke-by-products are utilized by various industries, including steelmaking, oil, and, in the past, agriculture.
The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Benzene Emissions from Coke-By-Product Recovery Plants regulates emissions of benzene. The NESHAP for benzene waste operations (40 CFR part 61, subpart FF) applies to equipment and processes at certain chemical manufacturing plants, coke by-product recovery plants, petroleum refineries, and facilities that treat, store, or dispose of waste generated by those industries.
See the regulations below for more details.
