The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (referred to as EPA or the Agency) is developing an air pollution regulation designed to reduce emissions generated by the metal can manufacturing industry. In the baseline for this analysis, the U.S. metal can manufacturing industry was comprised of 202 establishments, which were owned by 30 domestic and foreign companies and employed more than 160,000 workers. Of these facilities, 142 are classified as major sources of hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions,2 primarily due to emissions occurring during the coating process. Under Section 112 of the 1990 Clean Air Act (CAA) Amendments, EPA is currently developing national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) to limit these emissions. This report presents the results of an economic impact analysis (EIA) in which a market model was used to evaluate the economic impacts associated with the proposed regulation.
