This document is one of a series prepared for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to assist it in determining those petrochemical processes for which standards should be promulgated. A total of nine petrochemicals produced by twelve distinctly different processes has been selected for this type of in-depth study. Ten volumes, entitled Engineering and Cost Study of Air Pollution Control for the Petrochemical Industry (EPA-450/3-73-006a through j) have been prepared. A combination of expert knowledge and an industry survey was used to select these processes. The industry survey has been published separately in a series of four volumes entitled Survey Reports on Atmospheric Emissions from the Petrochemical Industry (EPA-450/3-73-005a, b, c, and d). This volume covers the manufacture of ethylene oxide by direct oxidation of ethylene. Included is a process and industry description, an engineering description of available emission control systems, the cost of these systems, and the financial impact of emission control on the industry. Also presented are suggested air episode procedures and plant inspection procedures.
