4(1) Isoprene

  • (a) Isoprene was concluded to meet paragraph 64(c) criterion of the Act. The proposed order to add isoprene to Schedule 1 of the Act was published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, on May 16, 2009. According to the final Screening Assessment Report, isoprene is entering or may enter the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health. The final Screening Assessment Report is available on the CEPA Environmental Registry of Environment Canada’s Web site.
  • (b) The risk management objective for isoprene, as stated in the above Table, is to reduce exposure to isoprene through the reduction of industrial isoprene emissions to the environment to the greatest extent practicable, using best available techniques economically achievable.
  • (c) In order to ensure that environmental releases of isoprene and human health risks due to exposure to isoprene are adequately addressed, the person or class of persons subject to the Notice will determine the maximum 24-hour average concentration of isoprene at or beyond the facility boundaries, by using the latest version of the air dispersion model called AERMOD. It is recommended that the provincial or territorial guidelines for compliance with the AERMOD dispersion model requirements be taken into account, wherever applicable. AERMOD is available on the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA)’s Web site, as amended from time to time.
  • In determining the maximum 24-hour average concentration of isoprene at or beyond the facility boundaries, the person or class of persons subject to the Notice must consider the factors stated in subparagraphs 4(1)(c)(i), 4(1)(c)(ii), 4(1)(c)(iii), and 4(1)(c)(iv), as part of the input data for AERMOD, under normal operating conditions. All information gathered considering these factors will be relative to the Base Year 2009.(see footnote *)
    • (i) Conducting sampling and analysis of isoprene from stack releases, once a year, including exhaust air volume rates and typical/current concentration of isoprene released to air. The sampling and analysis of isoprene should be performed by a laboratory that is accredited under the International Organization for Standardization standard ISO/IEC 17025 titled General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories, as amended from time to time, and whose accreditation includes the analysis of isoprene within its scope of testing. The sampling and analysis should be done using the latest available version of one of the following methods, as amended from time to time:
      • U.S. EPA Method 18 — Measurement of Gaseous Organic Compound Emissions by Gas Chromatography; or
      • U.S. EPA Method 0030 — Volatile Organic Sampling Train (VOST), and U.S. EPA Method 5041A — Analysis for Desorption of Sorbent Cartridges from VOST.
      (ii) Measuring or estimating emissions of isoprene to air from storage tanks by taking into account the latest available version of the following source, as amended from time to time:
      • U.S. EPA AP-42, Volume I, Chapter 7: Organic Liquid Storage Tanks and U.S. EPA TANKS Emission Estimation Software.
      (iii) Measuring or estimating fugitive emissions of isoprene to air by taking into account the latest available version of the first or second source and the third source, as amended from time to time:
      • U.S. EPA Method 21 — Determination of Volatile Organic Compound Leaks, as listed in Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 60, Appendix A, with a leak definition and monitoring procedure and frequency from U.S. EPA, Title 40 CFR, Part 63 — Subpart H, National Emission Standards for Organic Hazardous Air Pollutants for Equipment Leaks; or
