The major objective of the contract effort was to determine the direct economic impact of implementing Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) standards for selected industrial categories in Alabama. The study is to be used primarily to assist EPA and state decisions on achieving the emission limitations of the RACT standards. The economic impact was assessed for the following 2 RACT industrial categories: surface coating of cans and metal furniture. The scope of this project was to determine the costs and direct impact of control to achieve RACT guideline limitations. 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.
