Economic Impact Analysis For The Brick And Structural Clay Products Manufacturing NESHAP: Final Rule.
Pursuant to Section 112 of the Clean Air Act, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is developing National Emissions Standards for the Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs) to control emissions released from the domestic production of bricks and structural clay products (BSCP). Production of BSCP entails the firing of shaped clay minerals in kilns, a process that results in emissions of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). The NESHAP which this economic impact analysis (EIA) addresses is scheduled to be proposed in mid-2001. The Innovative Strategies and Economics Group (ISEG) of the Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS) has developed this analysis in support of the evaluation of impacts associated with the BSCP manufacturing NESHAP.
