Assessment Topic

This document presents the findings of an extensive study of the raw cane sugar processing segment of the sugar processing category for the purpose of establishing effluent limitations and guidelines, Federal standards of performance, and pretreatment standards for the industry for the purpose of implementing Sections 301, 304(b) and (c), 306(b), and 307(b) and (c) of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, as amended (33 U.S.C. 1251, 1311 and 1314(b) and (c), 1316(b) and 1317(c); 86 Stat. 816 et seq.). Effluent limitations and guidelines contained herein are based on the degree of effluent reduction attainable through the application of the best practicable control technology currently available (BPCTCA) and the degree of effluent reduction attainable through the application of the best available technology economically achievable (BATEA) which must be achieved by existing point sources by July 1, 1977, and July 1, 1983, respectively.
