The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is proposing to revise subcategorization and effluent limitations guidelines and standards for the meat products industry point source category. The current meat products rule, 40 CFR Part 432, sets effluent guidelines and limitations for the beef, pork, and rendering sectors of the meat product industry. These standards were set and revised over a number of years, most recently in 1995. This proposed rule revises the existing subcategories in the industry as well as guidelines for those subcategories, and proposes new standards for facilities that perform poultry slaughter and processing operations. Prior to this proposed rule, EPA has set no national effluent limitations guidelines or standards for poultry slaughters or processors.
