SNEAK PEEK: EPA may delay emissions rules for two years
O’Hare says it will allow the companies more time to save to make the investments it needs to make. However, even though the EPA is planning to extend the time two more years before implementation, “the rule is still quite challenging. The industry will need to give significant investment [to comply].”
Birmingham, Ala.-based Vulcan Materials, the largest provider of aggregates, has a single cement facility in Florida. The producer believes the EPA’s proposed amendments to air quality, which includes the two-year extension before implementation, are “appropriate.”
