Economic Assessment Of Proposed Toxic Pollutant Effluent Standards For Manufacturers And Formulators Of Aldrin/Dieldrin, DDT, Endrin And Toxaphene.
An assessment of the economic impact of proposed toxic pollutant effluent standards for the manufacturers and formulators of Aldrin-Dieldrin, DDT, Endrin, and Toxaphene (section 304(a) of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act) was performed, based on abatement cost data supplied by EPA. It was concluded that there will be no significant adverse economic impact upon prices, sales, profitability, employment, or the end use markets for these pesticides. In aggregate, compliane will require additional investment in treatment facilities of $0.8 - 1.1. million with annualized total costs of $0.5 - 0.7 million. The impact on prices will be potential increases of no greater than 2.3%.
The assessment includes descriptions of firms, plants, and markets for these pesticides; investments and operating costs for the abatement technologies; evaluation of pricing for these produces and potential adverse impacts.
