Abstract:
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is issuing a final regulation to establish emissions limits for toxic air pollutants from primary lead smelters. Air toxics, also known as hazardous air pollutants (HAP), are those pollutants known or suspected to cause cancer or other serious health effects. Primary lead smelters process lead bearing ore concentrates to produce lead metal. The majority of the lead produced is used to manufacture lead-acid batteries. The primary lead smelting "source category" (as defined by the Clean Air Act) does not include secondary lead smelters, lead remelters, or lead refiners.
