On January 5, 2010, U.S. EPA published in the Federal Register a Final Rule entitled “National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants: Area Source Standards for Prepared Feeds Manufacturing.” The rule applies to manufacturers of prepared animal feed (except dog and cat feed) that is an area source and uses a material containing chromium or a material containing manganese.
The Final Rule requires certain equipment standards and management practices. There are also requirements that are specific to certain areas of the plant or processes at all new and existing sources. The Final Rule also contains certain notification, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements.
