   other than those adopted under this subsection  shall consult with

   the  Administrator regarding  whether  any  other State  or  local

   United  States Code)  which  the  Administrator finds  causes,  or

   contributes to, air pollution that may be reasonably anticipated

   to  endanger  public  health  or  welfare.  Such  standards  shall

   require   the   application  of   reasonably   available   control

   technology,   considering  costs,   any  nonair-quality  benefits,

   environmental impacts,  energy  requirements  and  safety  factors

   associated  with  alternative control  techniques.  To  the extent

   practicable such  standards shall apply  to loading and  unloading

   facilities and not to tank vessels.

   permit   the  development   and  application   of   the  requisite

   technology,  giving  appropriate  consideration  to  the  cost  of

   compliance  within such  period, except  that  the effective  date
