EPA Proposes Removing MEK from HAP List From Large Facilities...

Published August 10, 2005
EPA is proposing to remove methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) from the Clean Air Act’s list of 188 hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) emitted from large industrial facilities.
Since 1996, EPA has reviewed the potential health and environmental effects that could result from exposure to MEK emitted from industrial facilities.

The health effect information on MEK that EPA used to make its decision underwent independent scientific peer review, according to the agency.
