Assessment Topic

National emission standards for the control of organic HAP emissions from surface coating operations at metal can manufacturing facilities are being proposed under the authority of Section 112 of the Clean Air Act. These standards would reduce air toxics from all major source metal can manufacturing facilities (defined as those sources that emit or have the potential to emit 10 tons/yr (9.1 Mg/yr) or greater of individual HAPs, or 25 tons/yr (22 Mg/yr) or greater of any combination of HAPs). This document contains background information and environmental and economic impact assessments of the regulatory alternatives (including MACT) considered in developing the proposed standards.
