The article focuses on the issues related to the tire-derived fuel (TDF). The Sierra Club was one of four environmental groups that filed suit in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, arguing that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency violated the intent of the Clean Air Act by allowing TDF to be regulated under the section of the act governing industrial boilers. The appeals court agreed and ruled that TDF burning should be regulated as waste incineration.
