Abstract:
On Dec. 15, 1999, EPA issued a final rule to reduce hazardous air pollutants emitted from secondary aluminum production plants. Air toxics, also known as hazardous air pollutants, are those pollutants known to cause or suspected of causing cancer or other serious health effects.

Secondary aluminum plants recover aluminum from scrap such as beverage cans, foundry returns, other aluminum scrap, and dross. Air toxics are released from preprocessing operations such as aluminum scrap shredding, thermal chip drying, scrap drying/decoating/ delacquering; and furnace operations (i.e., melting, holding, refining, fluxing, or alloying).
