Regulation Authority :
R.I. Gen. Laws § 42-17.1-2(19)
R.I. Gen. Laws Chapter 23-23
R.I. Gen. Laws Chapter 42-35
Purpose and Reason :
The purpose of this regulation is to limit emissions of volatile organic compounds and hazardous air pollutants from wood products manufacturing operations. The Department of Environmental Management, Office of Air Resources is proposing to amend Part 35 to meet the requirements contained in the EPA Control Technique Guideline Document, “Control of Volatile Organic Compound Emissions from Wood Furniture Manufacturing Operations” and the requirements contained in the National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for wood furniture manufacturing operations.
Additionally, definitions have been added and portions of the regulation that no longer apply have been eliminated. The regulation has been updated to current RI Code of Regulations (RICR) format which required the addition of an incorporated materials section.
Although R.I. Gen. Laws § 42-35-2.8, require that an oral hearing be granted if requested by twenty-five (25) persons, by an agency or by an association having at least twenty-five (25) members, an oral hearing will be granted if requested by one (1) or more persons during the public comment period.
