The panel will focus on developing amendments to air toxic emissions standards for secondary aluminum production facilities. Secondary aluminum plants recover aluminum from scrap such as beverage cans and process aluminum combined with other materials to produce alloys that are made into new products.
The panel will include federal representatives from the Small Business Administration, the Office of Management and Budget, and the EPA. The panel members ask a selected group of SERs to provide advice and recommendations on behalf of their company, community, or organization to inform the members about the potential impacts of the proposed rule on small entities.
The agency is seeking self-nominations directly from small entities that may be subject to the rules' requirements. Other representatives, such as trade associations that exclusively or at least primarily represent potentially regulated small entities, may also serve as SERs.
Self-nominations may be submitted through the links below and must be received by May 20, 2011. The EPA is under court order to propose standards for these sources in November 2011 and finalize them in August 2012.
