Assessment Topic

A national emission standard for petroleum refining and organic chemical manufacturing industries is being proposed under authority of Section 112 of the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 7412, as amended). The purpose of the proposed standard is to minimize benzene fugitive emissions in these industries. The document provides background information for the proposed standard. Control technologies and five regulatory alternatives are evaluated in terms of environmental and economic impacts on both new and existing emission sources. Included in the evaluation of environmental impacts are estimates of air quality, water, noise, and solid waste impacts. Included in the evaluation of economic impacts are estimates of total capital and annualized costs, including recovery credits. The file contains Chapters 1 (Summary), 8 (Cost of Controls), and 9 (Economic Impact).
