Pursuant to Section 112 of the Clean Air Act, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is developing a National Emissions Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) to control emissions released from the domestic production of rubber tires. The economic impact analysis (EIA) provides an estimate of the anticipated laboratory impacts of the NESHAP for Rubber Tire Manufacturing. In general, the economic impact of this proposed rule are expected to be minimal. A market price increase of less than 1 percent, or $0.03 per tire, is predicted. Domestic producer operating profits are projected to decrease by $14 million. No rubber tire facility is expected to close as a result of this proposed rule. The EIA estimates that domestic tire output will decline by 144,000 tires (0.05 percent), while imports will increase by 22,000 tires (0.04 percent), resulting in a net decline of 122,000 tires, or 0.03 percent. The social cost for the existing source analysis including current producers and consumers are project to by $22 million. This estimate excludes annual monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting costs.
