The article discusses a new set of regulatory proposals from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) which could affect rubber recyclers. The proposals seek to reduce emissions from industrial commercial and institutional boilers and solid waste incinerators. Rubber recyclers are worried that tire-derived fuel could be redefined as a solid waste, which could harm the rubber recycling industry.
