1998 EPCRA 313 Q&A, Question # 471

471. Ozone is manufactured as a result of the generation and transmission of electric power. Must the electricity generating facility report the amount of ozone manufactured?
Yes. Amounts of ozone (a toxic chemical) manufactured at a covered facility must be considered toward the facility's manufacturing threshold for ozone. If the facility knows that ozone is being manufactured, then the facility must use its best readily available information to provide reasonable estimates in making threshold and release and other waste management calculations.
