Manufacture of Amino/Phenolic Resins: National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP)
On this page:
The phenolic resins production source category includes any facility which manufactures synthetic resin obtained by the condensation polymerization of phenol and or substituted phenols with aldehydes such as formaldehyde, acetaldehyde and furfural. This source category includes, but is not limited to, phenol-formaldehyde, phenol-furfural and resorcinol-formaldehyde.
This action promulgates national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) to reduce emissions of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) from existing and new facilities that manufacture amino or phenolic resins.
These final standards are estimated to reduce organic HAP emissions from major existing sources by 361 tons per year, representing a 51 percent reduction from baseline emissions. The major HAPs emitted by sources covered by the final rule include formaldehyde, methanol, phenol, xylene, and toluene.
