The study is entitled "Study of Hazardous Air Pollutant Emissions from Electric Utility Steam Generating Units, Interim Final Report,"October 1996 (EPA-453/R-96-013abc). It does not make any regulatory determinations regarding electric utilities. A final report to Congress will be issued at a later date.
