EPA Requests Additional Time To Revise Boiler MACT

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking an extension in the current court-ordered schedule for issuing air emissions rules for large and small boilers and solid waste incinerators, commonly referred to as the Boiler MACT.

In order to meet a court order requiring the EPA to issue final rules in January 2011, the agency proposed standards in April 2010. During public comment, EPA received information from industry on a number of key areas, including the scope and coverage of the rules and the way to categorize the various boiler-types. After reviewing the data and public comments, the agency believes it is appropriate to issue a revised proposal that reflects the new data and allows for additional public comment.

EPA is under a current court order to issue final rules on January 16, 2011 and is seeking in its motion to the court to extend the schedule to finalize the rules by April 2012.
