Posted on 9/22/2016 by Roger Marks

In today’s Federal Register, US EPA announced an update to three chapters of the Air Pollution Control Cost Manual.

The chapters EPA will update are:
  • Section 1, Chapter 2: Cost Estimation
  • Section 3.1, Chapter 1: Refrigerated Condensers
  • Section 3.2, Chapter 2: Incinerators/Oxidizers
EPA requests comments from EHS professionals and industry stakeholders, to be submitted at regulations.gov under Docket ID number EPA-HQ-OAR-2015-0341.

What Is the Air Pollution Cost Control Manual?

The Air Pollution Cost Control Manual is a guide produced by US EPA to help environmental engineers estimate the costs of controlling air pollution from a particular source. US EPA uses the manual to estimate the financial impact that new Clean Air Act and other air pollution rules may have on US facilities.
