EPA delays Boiler MACT
- EPA is also issuing a stay to delay the effective date of the standards for major source boilers and commercial and industrial solid waste incinerators. The stay will allow the agency to seek additional public comment before requiring thousands of facilities across multiple, diverse industries to make investments that may not be reversible if the standards are revised following reconsideration and a full evaluation of all relevant data.
- The stay will remain in place until the proceedings for judicial review of these rules are completed or EPA completes its reconsideration of the standards, whichever is earlier. EPA understands that members of the public may wish to submit additional data. Any additional data and information related to affected sources and their emissions should be submitted by e-mail to email@example.com by July 15, 2011.
