The EPA has always published their plans for regulations twice a year in April and October as required by law. That did not happen in 2012.
Just 10 days before the end of the year or on the Friday before Christmas, the EPA did finally release their 2012 regulatory agenda, the Boiler MACT and the Cement MACT final regulations.
The EPA said that final estimated compliance costs for the Boiler and Cement MACT regulations were lower due to court ordered changes but would still cost between $53 million and $350 million. More information about the Cement rules are available through www.epa.gov/airquality/cement and more information about the Boiler rule can be found through http://www.epa.gov/airquality/combustion.
According to the EPA, the boiler rules should only impact a few of the 1.5 million boilers used across the United States.
