The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgates water effluent discharge limits (effluent limitations guidelines and standards or 'effluent guidelines') and air emissions standards for industrial sectors. This Economic Analysis (EA) evaluates the costs and economic impacts of technologies that form the bases for setting these limits and standards for the pulp, paper, and paperboard industry. The report also examines and estimates the qualitative, quantitative, and monetized benefits from reduced pollution, and compares the benefits and costs of the promulgated rules. The report also describes the relative cost-effectiveness of the pollution control technologies and evaluates the costs and impacts of the regulations that significantly impact a substantial number of small businesses. Because EPA considered the air and water requirements jointly, they are known as the 'Cluster or Integrated Rules.'
