EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AQ92 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: Residual Risk and Technology Review Amendments to the Primary Aluminum Reduction National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) 
Abstract: In this action the EPA will conduct a risk assessment to determine if existing Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standards for hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions from primary aluminum reduction facilities should be strengthened. The EPA will also review technical progress in the primary aluminum reduction source category to determine if newer, better technology for reducing emissions should be required of facilities in this source category. Section 112(f)(2) of the Clean Air Act (CAA) directs the EPA to conduct a risk assessment of a source category within 8 years after promulgation of the MACT standards for that source category. Section 112(d)(6) of the CAA directs the EPA to review and revise the MACT standards for a source category, as necessary, every 8 years after promulgation of the MACT standards for that source category, taking into account developments in practices, processes, and control technologies. The existing National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Primary Aluminum Reduction Plants (found in 40 CFR part 63, subpart LL) was promulgated in 1997 and applies to the owner or operator of each new pitch storage tank or new or existing potline, paste production plant, or anode bake furnace associated with primary aluminum reduction which is located at a major source, as defined in 40 CFR section 63.2.
