AF&PA Applauds Key Part of District of Columbia Circuit Court Decision on EPA Boiler MACT Rule But Concerned About Further Delay

Press release from the issuing company

Washington, D.C. – American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) President and CEO Donna Harman issued the following statement regarding the District of Columbia Circuit Court’s decision on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Boiler Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) rule:

“As we review the details of the DC Circuit Court’s ruling, we are pleased the court upheld the practical start-up and shut-down provisions but continue to urge the EPA to conclude a 25-year rulemaking roller coaster ride by responding quickly to the court’s remand on the carbon monoxide limits. Our companies are focused on generating essential power from their boilers and deserve affordable and achievable standards that are not constantly in flux.”
