Residual Risk and Technology Review for Ferroalloys Production

 
Docket ID: EPA-HQ-OAR-2010-0895
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
Summary:
This action is the Risk and Technology Review (RTR) for Ferroalloys Production. It addressed both the EPA's obligation under the Clean Air Act (CAA) to conduct a residual risk review and to conduct a technology review. Under the "technology review" provision of the CAA, the EPA is required 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 CAA, the 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. The final rule was published in the Federal Register 6/30/15.
