The major objective of the contract effort was to determine the direct economic impact of implementing Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) standards in Ohio. The study is to be used primarily to assist EPA and Ohio decisions on achieving the volatile organic compound (VOC) emission limitations of the RACT standards. The economic impact was assessed for the following eight RACT industrial categories: petroleum refinery fugitive emissions; surface coating of miscellaneous metal parts and products; gasoline tank trucks; synthesized pharmaceutical manufacturing; rubber tire manufacture; graphic arts; petroleum liquid storage in external floating roof tanks; and dry cleaners using perchloroethylene. The scope of this project was to determine the costs and direct impact of control to achieve RACT limitations for these eight VOC industrial categories in Ohio. Direct economic costs and benefits from the implementation of RACT limitations were identified and quantified. While secondary impacts (social, energy, employment, etc.) are addressed, they were not a major emphasis in the study.
