1Low numbers have highest priority, e.g., No. 1 is high priority, No. 59 is low priority.

2Formerly titled “Sintering: Clay and Fly Ash”.

3Minor source category, but included on list since an NSPS is being developed for that source category.

4Not prioritized, since an NSPS for this major source category has already been promulgated.
