WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 27, 2011)
- The American Chemistry Council (ACC) today joined other industry groups in filing a petition with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requesting a stay of its emission standards and regulatory requirements for industrial boilers (Boiler MACT) and solid waste incinerators (CISWI). The joint petition asks for a stay of the rules until the
EPA is reconsidering major portions of these rules
, and businesses should not be asked to comply until final requirements are clear," said
, President and CEO of the American Chemistry Council. "Otherwise, businesses could spend millions, if not billions, to comply with rules that may change. A stay would avoid premature and potentially misguided expenditures and allow companies to keep their immediate focus on expansion, hiring and growth."
