EPA Boiler Emissions

The initial concept for new emissions standards with proposed changes to the 1990 Clean Air Act have to do with human health. In the current thinking of the EPA, 99% of boilers in the in the country are already in compliance with the new regulations. So for all those members with corrugators and using natural gas as a fuel there is very little that needs to be done at this time other than standard maintenance to be in compliance. The concerns that come from coal, oil, and biomass fired boilers are bigger issues and may have impact on the suppliers of containerboard and solid fibre, but they’re not as likely to affect converters.
