WELCOME TO THE NEW CATC!
The old Control Technology Center (CTC) is history and
the CATC has taken its place. Although we have a new
look and feel (liposuction and a face-lift will do that), we
are still here to help you with your air pollution technol-
ogy questions. We hope you like the change. Check us
out and let us know what you think.
HOW DO I ACCESS THE CATC?
You can use the Internet World Wide Web, E-mail, FAX,
telephone or conventional mail to reach the CATC. See
the "Access Information" box in the center of the en-
closed CATC brochure.
WHAT'S NEW?

The new CATC Web site is operational! We are now
fully back under the umbrella of the Technology Transfer
Network (TTN). You can:
     - Find out more about us
     - Leave us a message
     - Access other CATC sponsored programs like
     the RACT/BACT/LAER Clearinghouse (RBLC),
     the U.S.-Mexico Border Information Center on Air
     Pollution (CICA), or the Small Business Assis-
     tance Program (SBAP)
     - Download CATC/CTC products.
Yes, you can still access all the old CTC products, but
it's a lot easier now to locate the CATC or CTC product
you need.  Just click on the CATC PRODUCT INFOR-
MATION graphic on the CATC Web, then your topic and
you are there.  Try it out and be sure to set a bookmark.
                  DO YOU WANT TO RECEIVE CATC MAIL?
                  We are discarding the old CTC mail list after this
                  mailing. So, if you want to continue to receive
                  CATC mail you must let us know! Send a
                  FAX, E-mail, or post card, call the CATC Info-
                  Line, or leave a message on the CATC Web. If
                  we don't hear from you, you won't be hearing
                  from us.
The new RACT/BACT/LAER Clearinghouse Internet
World Wide Web site (RBLC Web), a fully functional
and searchable web version of the RBLC BBS, is now
on-line! No more BBS toll-calls, Internet Telnet connec-
tions, or FTP file  downloads. Easy to use drop-down
pick lists and familiar user-friendly web controls aid your
search for the  information you need.  Current and histori-
cal data on source-specific air pollution prevention and
control technology determinations are a few clicks away.
Need EPA air emission standards  information? The
RBLC regulation  data base has summaries of all NSPS,
NESHAP, and  MACT emission standards.  To access
the RBLC Web, just click on the RBLC graphic on the
CATC Home Page and you are there.  Take a moment
to leave a message to let us know what you think or how
we can make it better.

The U.S.-Mexico Border Information Center on Air
Pollution (Centra de Information sobre Contamination
De Aire, or CICA) welcomes Rosalina Rodriguez.
Rosalina is helping CICA solve its coordination and
translation problems.  She is an engineer with EPA's
Innovative Strategies and Economics Group in Research
Triangle Park, NC.
The following NEW PRODUCTS are now complete and
available on the CATC Web.

CATC - Evaluation of Emissions from the Open
      Burning Household Waste in Barrels;
      EPA-600/R-97-134a&b (limited hard copies  are
      available)

      - Air Emissions from Soils Contaminated with
      Petroleum Fuels and Other
      Substances; EPA-600/R-97-116

      - Emissions from Outdoor Wood Burning
      Residential Hot Water Furnaces;
      EPA-600/R-98-117

      - Emerging Technologies for the Management
      and Utilization  of Landfill Gas;
      EPA-600/R-98-021

NOTE: The final Landfill Gas Emission Model
      (LandGEM) software upgrade and user's
      manual are due in late March 1998.  The paint
      spray gun cleaning equipment test method and
      residential wood boiler emissions reports are
      lost somewhere in the system. We are trying to
      track them down and will let you know as soon as
      they are available.

CICA - Ambient Air Monitoring Network Plan for
      Ciudad Acuna and Piedras Negras, Coahuila,
      Mexico; EPA-456/R-98-001 English) and

      (This is a very good summary of new data and
      previous CTC reports on tire burning!)

CAN'T FIND  THE RBLC DETERMINATION YOU ARE
LOOKING FOR?

If you think or know that a RACT, BACT or LAER deter-
mination was made, or precedent-setting air pollution
abatement technology application demonstrated and it is
not in the RBLC, please let us know. The RBLC staff
will make every reasonable effort to locate the missing
information and make it available on the RBLC Web.
We only need the name, location, and type of
source.  We  will do the rest.  If you know more, we
would appreciate receiving whatever information you
have. You may want to try filling in as much information
as you can on an RBLC data submission form. You can
download the form  from the RBLC documents section.  If
you have other information that would help us identify  or
complete data entry for the source, send or FAX us a
copy. Thanks for your help!
