Assessment Topic

This report evaluates the economic impacts of the final NESHAP for taconite iron ore producers. The industry impacts and social costs of the rule are estimated by incorporating the expected costs of compliance to a partial equilibrium model of the U.S. industry and projecting the market impacts for the various end-use markets. The report also provides an analysis of the impact on companies owning taconite facilities, and on the geographic region in Minnesota and Michigan where taconite production is concentrated.
