American Wood Council Response to EPA Release Regarding Boiler MACT Deadline

Jan 21, 2011

WASHINGTON – American Wood Council President Robert Glowinski today commented on Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) statement regarding the US District Court for the District of Columbia decision to grant a one-month extension for the final rulemaking on the Maximum Achievable Control Technology for Industrial Boilers (Boiler MACT).

"We are encouraged by EPA's pronouncement that the rule to come out next month will be far different from that which they proposed in April, 2010. We hope that real-world feasibility is incorporated into the final product, yielding a reasonable rule. 

"The court's decision yesterday is not what we had hoped for, but EPA's stated intention to provide for further public comment is a positive step, and they are to be commended for taking such steps. 

"The American Wood Council will continue to work with EPA to achieve a balance that protects jobs and the environment."
