Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued notice that the agency is denying a petition for reconsideration of air emission standards for certain types of electroplating, anodizing tanks, steel pickling process facilities and acid regeneration plants.

A final rule published in the Federal Register on September 19, 2012 that established new emission limits for hard and decorative chromium electroplating and chromium anodizing tanks, and steel pickling-HCl process facilities and hydrochloric acid regeneration plants. After publication of the rule, EPA received a petition for reconsideration of the final rule from the National Association of Surface Finishers (NASF). The EPA denied the petition because, in agency’s opinion, it failed to meet the criteria for reconsideration in CAA section 307(d)(7)(B).
