Existing Venturi

Regulatory  Background  

On  October  14,  2010  EPA  proposed
emission  limits,  New  Source
Performance  Standards  (NSPS)  for
new  SSIs  and  Effluent  Guidelines  (EG)
for  exis7ng  SSIs.

Emission  limits  are  based  on  the  Maximum  Achievable  Control
Technology  (MACT)

MACT  compliance  deadline  is  March  21,  2016
