An Economic Analysis Of Final Effluent Limitations Guidelines,New Source Performance Standards, And Pretreatment Standards For The Iron And Steel Manufacturing Point Source Category.
The report examines the economic effects of the final water pollution control regulation on the iron and steel industry. It focuses on the regulation's potential impacts on the steel industry's prices, financial condtion, and production capacity. The study was undertaken as part of EPA's overall review of the water pollution control regulation for the iron and steel industry. To analyze the production, pollution control, and financial characteristics of the iron and steel industry, the authors employed a policy testing model of the steel industry. The model combines a methodology for calculating economic effects with the production cost impact methodology employed by the American Iron and Steel Institute in its investigation of pollution control costs. This combination enabled the authors to prepare an integrated analysis of the costs and economic effects of environmental regulations.
