The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently published a proposed rule that would amend the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for the Manufacturing of Nutritional Yeast source category. This category includes any facility engaged in the manufacture of baker’s yeast by fermentation (both active dry yeast and compressed yeast). It also includes the following manufacturing process units: fermentation vessels and the drying and packaging system.
The proposed amendments include revising the form of the fermenter volatile organic compounds (VOC) emission limits, changing the testing and monitoring requirements, and updating the reporting and recordkeeping requirements. Click here to read the proposed rule.
