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 proposed under the authority of section 111 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 proposed standards would 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 would be reduced by more than 99 percent below the levels that would result from no control and more than 50 percent below the average levels that are being achieved by existing facilities controlled to the average State standards. Emissions of TRS would be reduced by more than 95 percent below the uncontrolled levels and more than 80 percent below the average levels for existing sources. An analysis of the environmental and economic effects associated with the proposed standards is included in this document. Portions of this document are not fully legible.
