EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AQ40 Publication ID: Fall 2010 
Title: ●Residual Risk and Technology Review Amendments to the Secondary Aluminum Production NESHAP 
Abstract: A secondary aluminum production facility means any establishment using clean charge, aluminum scrap, or dross from aluminum production as the raw material for processing. The existing 40 CFR part 63, subpart RRR National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Secondary Aluminum Production facilities was promulgated in 2000. This rule regulates Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP) from facilities that are major sources of HAP that operate aluminum scrap shredders, thermal chip dryers, scrap dryers/delacquering kilns/decoating kilns, group 2 furnaces, sweat furnaces, dross only furnaces, rotary dross coolers, and secondary aluminum processing units (SAPUs). SAPUs include group 1 furnaces and in-line fluxers. Area sources of HAP are regulated only with respect to emissions of dioxins/furans (D/F) from thermal chip dryers, scrap dryers/delacquering kilns/decoating kilns, sweat furnaces, and SAPUs. Facilities subject to these rules were required to be in compliance by March 2003. Section 112(f)(2) of the Clean Air Act (CAA) directs EPA to conduct risk assessments on each source category subject to maximum achievable control technology (MACT) standards and determine if additional standards are needed to reduce residual risks. The section 112(f)(2) residual risk review is to be done within 8 years after promulgation. Section 112(d)(6) of the CAA requires EPA to review and revise the MACT standards, as necessary, taking into account developments in practices, processes, and control technologies. The section 112(d)(6) technology review is to be done at least every 8 years. These risk and technology reviews for secondary aluminum production facilities will be conducted in this rulemaking, which will address possible residual risks, technology advancements, and technical deficiencies in the existing rule.
