This development document presents the findings of an extensive study of the synthetic polymers segment of the plastics and synthetics industry for the purposes of developing effluent limitations guidelines, and standards of performance for the industry. Guidelines and standards were developed for the following major products: ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymers, polytetrafluoroethylene, polypropylene fiber, alkyds and unsaturated polyester resins, cellulose nitrate, polyamides (Nylon 6/12), polyester resins (thermoplastic), silicones. Effluent limitations guidelines contained herein set forth the degree of reduction of pollutants in effluents that is attainable through the application of best, practicable control technology currently available (BPCTCA), and the degree of reduction attainable through the application of best available technology economically achievable (BATEA) by existing point sources. Standards of performance for new sources are based on the application of best available demonstrated technology (BADT). Cost, wastes, and control technology, are discussed.
