Development Document For Effluent Limitations Guidelines And New Source Performance Standards For The Unbleached Kraft And Semichemical Pulp Segment Of The Pulp, Paper, And Paperboard Mills Point Source Category, Final .
This document presents the findings of a study of the unbleached kraft, semichemical and paperboard segment of the pulp, paper, and paperboard industry for the purpose of developing effluent limitations for existing sources and standards of performance for new sources to implement Section 304(b) and 306 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendments of 1972(The "Act").
Effluent limitations guidelines are set forth for the degree of effluent reduction attainable through the application of the "Best Practicable Control Technology Currently Available" and the "Best Available Technology Economically Achievable" which must be achieved by existing point sources by July 1, 1977 and July 1, 1983, respectively. The "Standards of Performance for New Sources" set forth a degree of effluent reduction which is achievable through the application of the best available demonstrated control technology processes, operating methods or other alternatives.
