PU 111 Course Description:

Facilities that manufacture, process or otherwise use Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanate (MDI) or Toluene Diisocyanate (TDI) and exceed the threshold limits set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), are required to submit a Form A or Form R by July 1st of each reporting year to EPA and the designated state agency. To assist the reporting process, CPI developed a tool to help users with Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) reporting for diisocyanate. This is tool could also be used to help estimate diisocyanate emissions for purposes of permit application.

The purpose of this webinar is to illustrate the functionality of the RCAP tool and explain the modeling rationale for specific diisocyanate applications. The tool has been updated to build on and enhance previously available resources. The updated RCAP tool takes into account the chemical properties of diisocyanates and models emissions using EPA recommended methods. Please join us! Ask questions and gain new information to help facilitate your TRI reporting and emission estimates.
