Under Section 112 of the Clean Air Act (the Act), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is developing national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) for the taconite processing source category. Taconite processing involves separating and concentrating iron ore as well as creating and indurating (hardening) pellets. Taconite production in the United States is concentrated in a few counties in Minnesota and Michigan. To better control emissions of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) during these processes, EPA expects that additional emission control equipment will be installed for indurating furnaces and other part of the operation, such as onsite crushing and handling and pellet handling.
