The article focuses on the Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standards developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to eliminate hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) emissions. It says that the standard from the MACT approach is the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs) governing the reduction of major air emission source discharges. It adds that industry compliance to NESHAP can be demonstrated by control equipment introduction.
