         air pollutants in quantities which may cause a lifetime risk

         of cancer greater than one in one million to the  individual

         in the population  who is most exposed to emissions  of such

         pollutants from the source (or group of sources in the  case

         of area sources).  

           "(ii)  In the  case of  hazardous air  pollutants that may

         result in adverse health effects in humans other than cancer

         or  adverse  environmental  effects,  a  determination  that

         emissions  from no  source  in the  category  or subcategory

         concerned (or group of sources in the case of area  sources)

         exceed a level which  is adequate  to protect public  health

         with an ample margin of safety and no  adverse environmental

         effect will result from emissions from any source (or from a

         group of sources in the case of area sources).

      The Administrator shall  grant or  deny a  petition under  this

      paragraph within 1 year after the petition is filed.   

   "(d) Emission standards.-

      "(1) In general.-The Administrator shall promulgate regulations

   establishing emission standards  for each category or  subcategory

   of major  sources  and area  sources of  hazardous air  pollutants

   listed for  regulation pursuant  to subsection  (c) in  accordance

   with  the schedules  provided  in subsections  (c)  and (e).   The

   Administrator may distinguish  among classes, types, and  sizes of

   sources  within a  category or  subcategory  in establishing  such

   standards except that, there shall  be no delay in  the compliance

   date  for any standard applicable  to any  source under subsection

   (i) as the result of the authority provided by this sentence.   

      "(2)  Standards  and  methods.-Emissions standards  promulgated

   under this  subsection and  applicable to new  or existing sources

   of hazardous air pollutants  shall require  the maximum degree  of

   reduction in emissions of  the hazardous air pollutants subject to

   this section  (including a  prohibition on  such emissions,  where

   achievable) that the Administrator, taking  into consideration the

   cost  of  achieving  such  emission  reduction,  and  any  non-air

   quality health and environmental impacts  and energy requirements,

   determines  is  achievable  for new  or  existing  sources  in the

   category or subcategory  to which such emission  standard applies,

   through application  of measures, processes,  methods, systems  or

   techniques including, but not limited to, measures which-

         "(A) reduce the  volume of, or eliminate emissions  of, such

      pollutants  through process changes,  substitution of materials

      or other modifications,   "(B)  enclose systems or processes to

      eliminate emissions,   

         "(C) collect, capture or treat such pollutants when released

      from a process, stack, storage or fugitive emissions point,   

         "(D)  are design, equipment,  work practice,  or operational

      standards  (including  requirements  for  operator  training or

      certification) as provided in subsection (h), or   

         "(E) are a combination of the above.

None of the measures described in subparagraphs (A) through (D) shall,

consistent  with  the  provisions  of  section   114(c),  in  any  way

compromise any United States patent or United States  trademark right,

or any confidential business  information, or any trade secret  or any

other intellectual property right.   

      "(3) New and existing  sources.-The maximum degree of reduction

   in emissions  that  is deemed  achievable  for  new sources  in  a
