ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the proposed new Boiler MACT regulation by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EEPA) for commercial and industrial boilers. It mentions that the proposal would create limits for several emissions of toxic air pollutants such as dioxin and mercury. Furthermore, the proposed rule could help avoid 1,900 to 4,800 premature deaths in 2013 as a result of toxic air pollutants reduction, but several groups expressed their concerns on the cost and possible job losses.
