DEPARTMENT OF THE ENVIRONMENT

CANADIAN ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ACT, 1999

Proposed notice requiring the preparation and implementation of pollution prevention plans in respect of specified toxic substances released from the iron, steel and ilmenite sector

Federal, provincial and territorial environment ministers are taking action to better protect human health and the environment by endorsing and implementing the new Air Quality Management System (AQMS). The AQMS includes Canadian Ambient Air Quality Standards for fine particulate matter and ground-level ozone, Base Level Industrial Emissions Requirements (BLIERs) and local Air Zone Management by the provincial/territorial jurisdictions.

Environment Canada led a federal, provincial and territorial consensus process with stakeholder involvement to complete the development of industrial emission requirements. For the iron, steel, and ilmenite sector, quantitative BLIERs were developed for total particulate matter (TPM), oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and sulphur dioxide (SO2), and qualitative BLIERs were developed for fugitive total particulate matter and fugitive volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

The Minister of the Environment proposes to publish the annexed Notice under section 56 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999); the proposed Notice (the “Notice”) will initiate a 60-day comment period. Following the comment period and after review of the comments received, the Minister intends to publish a final Notice requiring the preparation and implementation of pollution prevention plans in the Canada Gazette, Part I.

The Final Notice will require the preparation and implementation of a pollution prevention plan for specified toxic substances released from the iron, steel and ilmenite sector. Iron, steel and ilmenite facilities release substances specified on the List of Toxic Substances in Schedule 1 of CEPA 1999. The substances to be addressed are

The Final Notice will apply to any person or class of persons within the iron, steel and ilmenite sector who own or operate a facility that carries out one or more of the following activities:

More information on pollution prevention planning can be found in the Pollution Prevention Planning Provisions of Part 4 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999: Guidelines for Implementation. These guidelines and other information relating to pollution prevention and pollution prevention planning can also be found in the “Pollution Prevention Planning” section of Environment Canada’s Web site at www.ec.gc.ca/planp2-p2plan.
