AWC comments on D.C circuit court decision on EPA

 Monday, March 19, 2018

awcAmerican Wood Council (AWC) President and CEO Robert Glowinski has issued the following statement in response to the District of Columbia Circuit (D.C. Circuit) Court decision on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) 2015 Boiler Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) Reconsideration rule.


“AWC is pleased the Court upheld the practical start-up and shut down requirements and hopes that outstanding issues with carbon monoxide limits can be resolved quickly to provide much-needed clarity after more than 25 years of this rulemaking process. We’re concerned that the final resolution continues to elude us.” says Robert Glowinski.


“Having said that, AWC appreciates EPA’s willingness to work with our industry during development of the Boiler MACT rule to address our economic and engineering concerns, and to support the use of renewable, carbon neutral biomass in our boilers.” Robert added further.
