Shredders and VOC Emissions
Metal shredding operations have the potential to emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and depending upon the amount emitted have the potential to trigger regulatory and/or permit requirements under the Clean Air Act (CAA) and associated state regulations.
VOC Emissions Guidance for Metal Shredders
ISRI will soon be publishing a compliance document for shredders, providing guidance on how to calculate VOC emissions from shredding operations, how to evaluate the applicability of Clean Air Act (CAA) permitting requirements for VOC emissions, and how to evaluate other requirements related to VOC emissions that might apply.
