Assessment Topic

Standards of performance for the control of emissions of total reduced sulfur (TRS) and particulate matter from new and modified kraft pulp mills are being promulgated under the authority of Section 111 of the Clean Air Act. TRS emissions from kraft pulp mills are extremely odorous, and there are numerous instances of poorly controlled mills creating public odor problems. The promulgated standards will prevent odor problems from most newly constructed kraft pulp mills, except in the immediate vicinity of the mills on occasions when meteorological conditions produce downwash of stack plumes. An analysis of the significant changes in the environmental and economic effects associated with the promulgated standards is included in this document.
