Description If you own or operate a ship-building or ship repair facility that has surface coating operations, the Clean Air Act, as amended in 1990, has targeted your business for special requirements. Because shipyards and ship repair facilities use a variety of Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) as solvents and carriers in marine coatings, the Environmental Protection Agency finalized a National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Shipbuilding and Ship Repair (Surface Coating) Operations on December 15, 1995.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
