Expand Your Membership Organization: Free Copy of Market Study
At the ICAC Board of Directors meeting held on July 29, 2014, the Board Working Group that has been formed to help sell ICAC, proposed to provide incentives to those that help expand our organization’s membership through their new-member recruitment efforts.
As an organization representing companies in the air pollution control and monitoring industry, it’s crucial that we expand our membership reach and share our message, so that we can assist in developing and shaping legislation that impacts the future of our member-companies’ technologies.
We welcome you to participate in our first-ever of its kind, Membership Recruitment Program. By recruiting a new ICAC member you can receive one of the following:
- A free copy of the 2014 Market Study or those members of the ICAC not already eligible.
- A credit valued at $250 for Associate Members to be applied toward your attendance at the ICAC Annual Meeting
- A credit valued at $500 for Regular Members to be applied toward your attendance at the ICAC Annual Meeting
Help us strengthen our organization so that we can offer our members the most valuable experience available to those in our industry. For more information, please contact Betsy Natz at email@example.com or (571) 858-3708.

Petroleum Refineries Air Toxics Proposed Rule
On June 30, EPA finally published the proposed refinery MACT Residual and Technology Risk Review (RTR) rule in the Federal Register (79 FR 36880). This is a major RTR proposal, and comments are due by October 28th (recently extended).
The RTR is the result of EPA’s evaluation of two MACT standards – Petroleum Refineries (Refinery MACT 1) and Petroleum Refineries: Catalytic Cracking Units, Catalytic Reforming Units and Sulfur Recovery Units (Refinery MACT 2). Among the provisions are requirements that refineries monitor their emissions at multiple fenceline locations to assess benzene concentrations, revisions to the operational requirements of flares to improve their combustion efficiency and other requirements.
A workgroup has been created to determine if ICAC should file comments on the proposed rule. Please contact Doug Austin at email@example.com for more information.
Mercury Control Division Forms Installations Subgroup
A subgroup has been formed to create a template for developing a list of mercury control installations, and had its first call on 10/6. This list is of particular interest to the International Energy Agency in light of the ratification and implementation of the Minimata Convention to control mercury releases to the environment. Please contact Doug Austin at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining the subgroup.
