Marine Vessel Loading Operations: National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP)
On this page:
EPA's final rule will reduce emissions of air toxics by approximately 4,500 tons annually. These pollutants include benzene, toluene, hexane, xylene, and ethyl benzene. Benzene is a known human carcinogen, and the other toxic compounds have been associated with adverse health effects, including central nervous system damage, developmental effects, and respiratory problems. Air toxics are those pollutants that are known or suspected of causing cancer or other serious health effects.
