Air General Permits - Ethylene Oxide Sterilizers

A number of industries use ethylene oxide as a sterilant for heat-or-moisture sensitive materials or as a fumigant to control microorganisms or insects. Ethylene oxide, which is considered an air toxic or hazardous pollutant, is released during these operations.

An optional Ethylene Oxide Sterilizers Air General Permit Example Worksheet [Fill-able PDF - 85 kb] is available. Ethylene oxide sterilizers are eligible to operate in Florida under the terms of an air general permit pursuant to the requirements of the applicable  Chapter 62-210.310(5)(g), F.A.C.
