Assessment Topic

The report is an analysis of the economic and financial effects of the proposed water effluent guidelines on the iron and steel industry. Additional capital expenditure requirements for water pollution control equipment will be $923.7 million in 1981-1984. An additional $97.6 million will be required for NSPS additions to 1985-1990. These capital requirments, together with the corresponding annual operating costs, will probably cause the steel industry to significantly reduce reworks expenditures for production capacity. This in turn will probably result in an approximate 6.0 percent decline in industry production capacity, a 4.9 percent decrease in domestic market share, and a potential decline in steel industry employment of about 13,875 jobs during the latter part of the 1980s and the beginning ot the 1990s.
