AWC Statement on EPA Decision to Stay Boiler MACT and CISWI Rules

May 16, 2011

WASHINGTON – American Wood Council President Robert Glowinski today issued the following statement regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) decision to stay the Boiler MACT and CISWI rules.  

“We applaud EPA’s granting of the stay request of the Boiler MACT and CISWI rules.  This is an important first step in moving forward in a constructive way that will allow for the needed time and due deliberation necessary to make appropriate improvements in these rules.  Issues remain that will have dramatic economic impact on businesses, and most-importantly jobs.  Before businesses can make any significant investments in additional boiler controls, they must have more certainty on any new standards. 

“Further, given the complexity of the proposed multiple control requirements, including some that may not be achievable at the present, this stay to permit additional work on the rules will give companies better lead times for proper design and implementation.  However, much effort is still needed to make these rules more achievable, and we look forward to working toward those changes with EPA during the reconsideration process.”
