EPA challenged over ‘weak’ emissions limits for chemical plants

EPA’s rule setting emissions limits for chemical plants will leave people in the surrounding areas exposed to an unacceptable level of cancer risk, according to environmental and community groups who filed a petition for review in the D.C. Circuit.

The petition filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit Tuesday challenges the agency’s final rule issued in August that sets national emissions standards for hazardous air pollutants emitted from miscellaneous organic chemical manufacturing facilities.
