EPA is establishing three tiers of Advanced Technology performance requirements, each with unique limitations and standards based on the underlying model technology particular to that tier. To promote ambitious use of Advanced Technologies, EPA is offering greater incentives to mills that achieve the more advanced tiers, thereby realizing greater reductions in pollutant discharges. EPA has established the incentives tiers to that they can be achieved by mills using either elemental chlorine free (ECF) bleaching technology or totally chlorine free (TCF) bleaching technology. The incentives program is available to existing and new direct discharge mills.
