Assessment Topic

New Source Performance Standard for secondary emissions from basic oxygen process furnace (BOPF) steelmaking shops is being proposed under authority of Section 111 of the Clean Air Act. The purpose of the proposed standard is to minimize BOPF secondary particulate emissions to the level attainable with the best demonstrated technology. Revisions to the existing BOPF primary standard (40 CFR 60.140, Subpart N) are also being proposed. These would clarify the definition of a BOPF and the sampling time used to determine compliance. This document provides background information on the industry and emission control techniques and discusses regulatory alternatives and associated economic and environmental impacts. No additional analysis was conducted for the final rule.
