This volume of the draft Mercury Study Report to Congress focuses on mercury control technologies, costs, and financial impact estimates for six industries: municipal waste combustors, medical waste incinerators, utility boilers, chlor-alkali plants, primary copper smelters, and primary lead smelters. Control technologies reviewed for feasibility are pollution prevention measures (including product substitution and process modification), materials separation, and flue gas treatment methods. The estimated cost effectiveness values represent generalized costs and are not intended to be site-specific. Analysis of Clean Air Act Authorities that could be used to control mercury emission sources are summarized. Specific technological approaches to limiting mercury emissions for these six industries are described along with data needed to improve these assessments.
