The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is developing a maximum achievable control technology (MACT) standard to reduce hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) from the integrated iron and steel manufacturing source categories. To support this rulemaking, EPA's Innovative Strategies and Economics Group (ISEG) has conducted an economic impact analysis (EIA) to assess the potential costs of the rule. This report documents the methods and results of this EIA. Finished steel products are primarily used as a major input to consumer products such as automobile and appliances. In 1997, the United States produced 105.9 million short tons of steel mill products. This National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) (or MACT standard) addresses emissions from pushing, quenching, and battery stacks. These proposed standards will implement Section 112(d) of the Clean Air Act (CAA) by requiring all major sources to meet HAP emission standards reflecting the application of the MACT. The HAPs emitted by this source category include coke oven emissions, polycyclic organic matter, and volatile organic compounds such as benzene and toluene.
