CPI Launches TDI Emission Compliance Program

The Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) of the American Chemistry Council (ACC) has launched a program to help manufacturers, processors and other users of toluene diisocyanate (TDI) with calculating emissions to meet mandatory reporting obligations to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). CPI’s Regulatory Compliance Assistance Program (RCAP) is intended to help facilities calculate their Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) reporting.

The program was created as general guidance to help facilities understand and estimate TDI emissions for TRI reporting under the “toluene diisocyanate (mixed isomers),” “toluene-2,4-diisocyanate” and “toluene-2,6-diisocyanate” categories. EPA requires facilities that exceed TDI threshold limits to submit a Form A or Form R by July 1 of each year to federal regulators and to other corresponding state agencies based on the preceding calendar year's activities.  

The tool has a number of built-in formulas to estimate emissions from typical process applications and activities. A convenient spreadsheet format allows users to import data and print helpful reports and is available free of charge on CPI’s Website. In addition to the RCAP for TDI, CPI also offers a similar program for MDI under the "diisocyanates" category. CPI offers program users support to help answer questions regarding MDI, PMDI, TDI or TRI reporting.
