AWC Statement on Request of EPA to Stay Boiler MACT and CISWI Rules

Apr 27, 2011

WASHINGTON – American Wood Council President Robert Glowinski today issued the following statement following a broad coalition of manufacturers’ request to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to stay the Boiler MACT and Commercial Industrial Solid Waste Incinerator (CISWI) rules.

“AWC and its fellow coalition members believe strongly that EPA should stay both the Boiler MACT and CISWI rules, while issues with them are addressed.  EPA has within its power to stay the rules, and we’re requesting that they do so.

“EPA itself has identified several areas of the rules they plan to reconsider, so companies trying to comply with rules that will certainly change becomes a futile exercise.  We feel that staying both rules is in the best interest of everyone so that work can continue toward making much needed improvements in the rules.

“Given the complexity of the rules with multiple control requirements, including some that may not be achievable, competition for qualified engineering firms and control providers, as well as lead time for capital acquisition, permitting, and installation, will necessitate that companies have three full years to devise and implement very complex compliance plans. 

“We look forward to working with the EPA, and feel staying the rule is an important next step in the process toward achieving the necessary changes to it.”
