Standards of performance for the control of emissions of total reduced sulfur (TRS) and particulate matter from new and modified kraft pulp mills are being promulgated under the authority of section III of the Clean Air Act. TRS emissions from kraft pulp mills are extremely odorous, and there are numerous instances of poorly controlled mills creating public odor problems. The promulgated standards will prevent odor problems from most newly constructed kraft pulp mills, except in the immediate vicinity of the mills on occasions when meteorological conditions produce downwash of stack plumes. Particulate matter emissions from new mills will be reduced by more than 99 percent below the levels that would result from no control and more than 50 percent below the average State standards. Emissions of TRS will be reduced by more than 95% below the uncontrolled levels and more than 80 percent below the average levels for existing sources. An analysis of the significant changes in the environmental and economic effects associated with the promulgated standards is included in this document.
