This report presents an overview of federal and state regulations affecting so2 emissions from nonferrous metal smelters. Compliance strategies provide a study basis, and individual smelter requirements are reviewed. The report contains an overview of U.S. copper reserves and quality; mine and smelter productivity; facility ownership, capacity, and production; and acid and concentrate transport costs. Prior copper pricing practices were analyzed with respect to industry structure, current competitiveness, solvency, and possible response to federal aid.
