EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AQ40 Publication ID: Spring 2014 
Title: Residual Risk and Technology Review Amendments to the Secondary Aluminum Production National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) 
Abstract: 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 secondary aluminum production facilities that are major sources of HAP and 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. The Clean Air Act requires EPA to review maximum achievable control technology (MACT) standards and to revise them "as necessary (taking into account developments in practices, processes, and control technologies)" no less frequently than every 8 years. Under the "residual risk" provision of the Clean Air Act, EPA must evaluate the MACT standards within 8 years after promulgation and promulgate standards if required to provide an ample margin of safety to protect public health or prevent an adverse environmental effect while considering the economic impacts of controls, technological feasibility, uncertainties, and any other relevant factors. 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 clarifications to the existing rule.
