This document is intended to assist establishments and facilities performing leather tanning and finishing in complying with the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act (EPCRA) Section 313 and Pollution Prevention Act (PPA) Section 6607 reporting requirements, the preparation of Form R or the alternate certification statement, Form A. Chapter 1 introduces EPCRA Section 313 and PPA Section 6607 reporting and provides a brief background on Section 313 of EPCRA and Section 6607 of PPA. Chapter 2 discusses reporting requirements and begins with how to determine whether your facility must report. Chapter 3 discusses how to calculate the activity thresholds (manufacture, process, and otherwise use) for the EPCRA Section 313 chemicals or chemical categories. Chapter 4 discusses how to estimate the release and other waste management activity amounts for those EPCRA Section 313 chemicals and chemical categories for which you must prepare a report. The first part of this chapter provides a step-by-step approach designed to minimize the risk of overlooking an activity involving an EPCRA Section 313 chemical or chemical category and any potential sources or types of release and other waste management activities. The second part of Chapter 4 is organized by five major groupings. These subsections describe the typical leather tanning and finished unit operations where EPCRA Section 313 chemicals and chemical categories are used: beamhouse operations; tanhouse operations; retanning, coloring, and fatliquoring operations; finishing operations; and wastewater treatment. The commonly used EPCRA Section 313 chemicals and chemical categories, process descriptions, release and other waste management activity estimates, example calculations, and common problems are presented.
