Abstract:
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued air toxics standards for the secondary aluminum production in December 1999 (published March 23, 2000). These standards apply to plants that recover aluminum from scrap, such as beverage cans, foundry returns, dross and other aluminum scrap, including certain aluminum die casting facilities and aluminum foundries. The EPA is proposing to stay its air toxics rule for secondary aluminum production as it applies to aluminum die casting facilities and aluminum foundries. The EPA is proposing the stay to reduce the compliance burden of the existing rule on aluminum die casters and aluminum foundry operators who will have to comply with the new standards once those are developed. Once the proposed stay becomes final, aluminum die casters and aluminum foundry operators presently subject to EPA's air toxics standards for secondary aluminum production will not be required to comply with those standards. The EPA will finalize today's proposal once th e Agency has proposed standards for aluminum die-casting facilities and aluminum foundries.
