The purpose of the document is to provide a basis for evaluating the potential economic impact of effluent limitations guidelines and standards of performance established by EPA pursuant to sections 304(b) and 306 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act. The study supplements an EPA technical 'Development Document' issued in conjunction with the promulgation of guidelines and standards for point sources within this industry category. This study supplements that analysis by estimating the broader economic effects (including product price increases, continued viability of affected plants, employment, industry growth and foreign trade) of the required application of certain of these control technologies.
