This document summarizes the basic background information used in the development of MACT standards for the integrated iron and steel manufacturing source category. All references cited in this document are available in Docket No. A-2000-44. In addition, this document is supplemented by technical memoranda to the docket to document those steps in the standards development process not covered within this compilation of background information. The balance of chapter 1 summarizes the statutory basis for MACT standards and the selection of the source category. Chapter 2 provides an overview of the industry. Chapter 3 discusses the processes in detail and provides estimates of baseline emissions for each process. Emission control technologies and their performance are summarized in Chapter 4. Chapter 5 presents the determination of the MACT floor. Model plants are developed in Chapter 6 (for use in estimating potential impacts), and options for emission control and monitoring are discussed. Environmental and energy impacts are estimated for the model plants and for all plants nationwide in Chapter 7. The estimated costs for emission control and monitoring are given in Chapter 8. Appendix A summarizes the emissions data and Appendix B documents the information used to develop the MACT floor.
