EPA Acts on Greenhouse Gas Emissions After Senate Stalls on Cap and Trade, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - October 7, 2009) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Last week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a long-awaited draft rule on greenhouse gas emissions after the Obama administration decided that draft Senate energy legislation did not go far enough in trying to reduce heat-trapping greenhouse gas emissions. The EPA draft rule would require large industrial facilities that emit at least 25,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year to obtain construction and operating permits covering these emissions. These permits must demonstrate the use of best available control technologies and energy efficiency measures to minimize greenhouse gas emissions when facilities are constructed or significantly modified.
