National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutant 
Emissions: Group IV Polymers and Resins; Pesticide Active Ingredient 
Production; and Polyether Polyols Production

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Reopening of public comment period.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On January 9, 2012, the EPA proposed amendments to three 
national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants: National 
Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutant Emissions: Group IV 
Polymers and Resins; National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air 
Pollutants for Pesticide Active Ingredient Production; and National 
Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Polyether Polyols 
Production. The EPA is reopening the comment period until March 30, 
2012. The EPA received a request for this reopening from the Sierra 
Club. The Sierra Club requested the reopening in order to analyze data 
and review the proposed amendments. EPA finds this request to be 
reasonable due to the multiple source categories involved in this 
action.
