AWC responds to EPA's Boiler MACT proposal

Dec 02, 2014

WASHINGTON – American Wood Council President and CEO Robert Glowinski issued the following statement following the Boiler Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) reconsideration proposal released by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today.

"Due to regulatory and court delays, wood products manufacturers have been waiting for clarity on the implementation of 2013 Boiler MACT. We appreciate EPA releasing this proposal and the breadth of issues addressed. AWC staff is still reviewing it and expects to provide additional comments.

"Wood products manufacturers will be devoting millions of dollars into emission control strategies in order to meet these regulations and deserve sufficient time to comply. At the end of this comment period, there will be less than a year from the compliance deadline of January 2016. The deadline should be extended because manufacturers will be left with just months to design and install costly equipment in order to be in compliance when the reconsideration proposal is finalized."

EPA is required to review the standard every five years.
