The article focuses on techniques and processes to capture and control styrene emissions citing the need to meet hazardous air pollutant emissions under new maximum achievable control technology (MACT). MACT standards provided options for manufacturers which include the reduction of the amount of styrene used in the creation of their products resulting in weaker products, ignoring regulations and face fines and investment in pollution control technologies to eliminate styrene.
