The purpose of this document is to assist Federal, State and local air pollution agencies and others who are interested in locating potential air emitters of methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) and making gross estimates of air emissions therefrom. Section 3.0 of this document briefly summarizes the physical and chemical characteristics of MEK, and provides an overview of its production and use. Section 4.0 of this document focuses on major production source categories that may discharge air emissions containing MEK. Section 5.0 discusses the uses of MEK as industrial feedstocks and major solvent uses, particularly paint and ink manufacturing, degreasing, and coating operations. Section 6.0 addresses residual emissions from industry and Section 7.0 describes emissions from industries which may produce MEK as a by-product of processes (e.g., burning of fuel oil).
