[Charles L French; United States. Environmental Protection Agency. Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards.;]. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is revising its response to the US Supreme Court decision that determines whether EPA should consider cost in rule-making under section of Clean Air considering the cost of compliance relative to the benefits of reducing hazardous air pollution emissions from coal- and oil- fired electric utility steam generating units (power plants).

Fossil fuel-fired electric utility steam generating units are boilers that are capable of combusting over MMBtu/h of fossil fuel and that was constructed for the purpose of supplying more than one-third of its potential electric output capacity and more than 25 MW electrical output to any utility power distribution system for sale.

Statement of Need: Section (n)(1)(A) of the Clean Air Act required EPA to conduct a study of the hazards to public health resulting from emissions of hazardous air pollutants from electric utility steam generating units and, after considering the results of that study, determine whether it was appropriate and necessary to regulate such units under section Study of Hazardous Air Pollutant Emissions from Electric Utility Steam Generating Units — Final Report to Congress (EPA/Ra; February ).

GAO reviewed the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) final rule on National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants. GAO found that the final rule establishes a subcategory of certain existing electric utility steam generating units (EGUs) firing eastern bituminous coal refuse (EBCR) for acid gas hazardous air pollutant (HAP) ed is our.

The term “electric utility steam generating unit” is defined in CAA section (a)(8) and at 40 CFRas follows: The term “electric utility steam generating unit” means any fossil fuel fired combustion unit of more than 25 megawatts that serves a generator that produces electricity for sale.

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals has specifically recognized EPA’s “clear statutory obligation to set emissions standards for each HAP [listed in CAA. GAO reviewed the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) new rule on the national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants from coal- and oil-fired electric utility steam generating units and standards of performance for fossil-fuel-fired electric utility, industrial-commercial-institutional, and small industrial-commercial-institutional steam generating units.

The proposed rule covered national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) from coal- and oil-fired electric utility steam generating units (EGUs) under Clean Air Act section (d), and proposed revised new source performance standards (NSPS) for fossil fuel-fired EGUs under CAA section (b).The EPA estimated that there are.

Beginning with the Clean Air Act Amendments, there has been considerable interest in mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants. This past year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued both the Mercury Study Report to Congress and the Study of Hazardous Air Pollutant Emissions from Electric Utility Steam-Generating Units, which make clear that EPA.

InCongress also mandated that electric utility steam generating units’ emissions of hazardous air pollutants must be regulated if the Agency found such regulation “appropriate and necessary” after performing a study of the public health hazards reasonably anticipated as a result of those emissions.

The term “electric utility steam generating unit” means any fossil fuel fired combustion unit of more than 25 megawatts that serves a generator that produces electricity for sale.

A unit that cogenerates steam and electricity and supplies more than one-third of its potential electric output capacity and more than 25 megawatts electrical output to any utility power distribution system for.The 7 units included 4 utility boilers and 3 industrial boilers.
