Standards of performance are promulgated for the control of particulate matter from metallic mineral plants processing metallic ores into metallic concentrates containing one of the following metals: aluminum, copper, gold, iron, lead, molybdenum, silver, titanium, tungsten, uranium, zinc, and zirconium. The standards, promulgated under the authority of Section III of the Clean Air Act, limit stack emissions and fugitive emissions opacity. These standards apply to new, modified, and reconstructed metallic mineral processing plants. This document contains a summary of the comments on the proposal of these standards in the FEDERAL REGISTER, the Environmental Protection Agency's response to these comments, and any changes to the standard since proposal.
