Adopted Part 232 Dry Cleaning Facilities

The Department has repealed the Perchloroethylene Dry Cleaning Facilities regulation (6 NYCRR Part 232) and replaced it with a new Part 232, entitled, Dry Cleaning Facilities, which will regulate facilities that operate perchloroethylene (perc) and/or alternative solvent dry cleaning equipment. Alternative solvent dry cleaning equipment was previously regulated as a "General Process Emission Source" under 6 NYCRR Part 212. The updated regulation has added several new components to improve compliance and program delivery; reduce perc and alternative solvent emissions to the environment; address advancements in technology and changes in the industry regarding the use of alternative dry cleaning solvents; and bring New York's regulation up to date with current federal requirements.
