(08/29/03) On Aug. 20, EPA issued a final rule to control hazardous air emissions from primary magnesium refineries. This rule affects only one facility – the U.S. Magnesium Corp. in Rowley, Utah, which produces magnesium metal from the waters of the Great Salt Lake. This rule does not impose additional requirements on that facility; it requires them to maintain air pollution control equipment and meet the emission limits already established in the plant’s operating permit issued by the State of Utah Department of Environmental Quality.
