Metal Recycling and Shredding Industry


Metal recycling and shredding operations are sources of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions through the volatilization of residual fluids and fuels that are not completely removed from the prepared scrap metal.  Rates of VOC emissions vary widely, and are dependent on the size of the shredder, the type of material processed, and if it is properly drained, and whether the shredder is enclosed and operates using existing control equipment. This can be especially concerning for facilities located in ozone non-attainment areas (where permitting thresholds are low and VOC emissions standards can be stringent) or facilities that are subject to VOC emissions limits.
