Assessment Topic

EPA has promulgated new BAT limitations that will achieve significant pollutant reductions using technologies with the economic capability of the bleached papergrade kraft and soda subcategory as a whole. EPA wants to encourage additional pollutant reductions by promoting the widespread use and perfection of new technologies such as extended delignification and the development of even more advanced technologies, such as those aimed at reducing pulping and bleaching discharge flow. For this reason, EPA is establishing a Voluntary Advanced Technology Incentives Program to encourage mills to move beyond today's baseline BAT technologies toward the "mill of the future," which EPA believes will have a minimum impact on the environment. EPA is codifying three tiers of Voluntary Advanced Technology NSPS, which together form the Voluntary Advanced Technology Incentives Program.
