Pulp and Paper Chemical Recovery Combustion Sources National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) 40 CFR Part 63 Subpart MM: Inspector Checklist

This November 2003 checklist is a tool to evaluate compliance with the Pulp and Paper NESHAP. It does not contain an exhaustive list or description of all federal environmental regulations that may apply to a pulp and paper facility. Additionally, some facilities have separate standards as outlined in the Federal Register. Check the regulations for applicable rules for the Weyerhaeuser Paper Company’s Cosmopolis, Washington facility.

The items contained in this document are geared towards inspecting the facility, hence, a number of requirements contained in 40 CFR part 63 and Subpart MM, such as permitting protocols, definitions and ancillary information, are not included. For example, many of the notification requirements are not included as they pertain to the permitting of the source. However, those notifications necessary for compliance purposes are included.

For more information on the rule, visit the regulation page for Kraft, Soda, Sulfite, and Stand-Alone Semichemical Pulp Mills (MACT II): National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Chemical Recovery Combustion Sources.
