Assessment Topic

Standards of performance of particulate matter emissions from affected facilities at new and modified lime manufacturing plants are being promulgated under the authority of sections 111, 114, and 301(a) of the Clean Air Act, as amended. The standards would require that particulate matter emissions be reduced by over 99 percent below the uncontrolled levels, and by about 70 percent below the emission levels being achieved by existing sources controlled to meet typical State standards. Volume 1 discusses the proposed standards, and an analysis of the associated environmental and economic impacts is included in this document. This volume contains a summary of the public comments on the proposed standards and EPA's responses as well as summary economic and environmental impact statements.
This rule was remanded by the Court of Appeals on May 19, 1980. The rule was promulgated again in 1984. See A.84.20 for the comment-response document which discusses changes to the rule.
