The article reports on the proposal of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to reduce air toxics emissions until 70 percent from halogenated solvent clearing operations for coating industries in the U.S. It will impose an annual cap on emissions of several solvents such as methylene chloride to reduce emissions with the use of traditional methods. The said proposal deals with the eight year review provisions of the Clean Air Act and residual risk.
