  • EPA And Industry Fail To Settle Waste Unit Risk Policy Fight

    The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry groups including cement producers have failed to settle a permit dispute that is testing whether the agency has the authority to require operators of hazardous waste combustion units to conduct risk assessments that can be used to strengthen emissions limits for mercury and other pollutants when renewing the facilities' existing waste and air permits. Negotiations stalled during a meeting in November 2013 between EPA lawyers and cement kiln operators at EPA's Region V offices, according to an 8 January 2014 status report the parties filed with the Environmental Appeals Board (EAB). Litigation will continue on 20 February 2014.

  • EPA Updates The Mercury And Air Toxics Standards For New Power Plants

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) updated emission limits for new power plants under the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS). The updates only apply to future power plants; do not change the types of state-of-the-art pollution controls that they are expected to install; and will not significantly change costs or public health benefits of the rule.

  • EPA Finally Amends Its Boiler MACT Regulations And Further Defines Fuels Versus Wastes

    Boiler owners beware – EPA has “finalized” its Boiler MACT, GACT, CISWI and NHSM rules and the compliance clocks have begun ticking.

  • Boiler Compliance At Area Sources

    The EPA finalized changes to Clean Air Act standards for area source boilers (40 CFR 63, subpart JJJJJJ) and for major source boilers (40 CFR 63, subpart DDDDD).  As a result, 99 percent of the approximately 1.5 million boilers in the U.S. are not covered or can meet the new standards by conducting periodic boiler tune-ups.
