The document presents the technical data to support effluent limitations for the pharmaceutical manufacturing point source category as required by the Clean Water Act (The Act) and related settlement agreements. It also presents the technologies to achieve limitations as defined by an amended best practicable control technology currently available (BPT), best available technology economically achievable (BAT) and best conventional pollutant control technology (BCT), and standards as defined by new source performance standards (NSPS), and pretreatment standards for new and existing sources (PSNS and PSES). The pharmaceutical manufacturing point source category manufactureres biological products, medicinal chemicals, botanical products and pharmaceutical products covered by Standard Industrial Classification Code (SIC) Numbers 2831, 2833, and 2834, and other commodities described within the report.
