The United States Environmental Protection Agency has promulgated (or will promulgate)
National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for certain source categories. These
standards, otherwise known as Maximum Achievable Control Technology standards, are intended to
protect the public health by requiring existing and new major sources of hazardous air pollutants to
control emissions of these pollutants. Several of the Maximum Achievable Control Technology
standards have a direct impact on sources in the agriculture and forest products industries.
