With our next Today’s Boilerscheduled for May, I don’t want to wait that long to keep you apprised on the latest in the ongoing saga of finalizing and implementing new boiler regulations. Even last month’s ABMA meeting is not the latest, but ABMA president Randy Rawson has sent his members (including ES) a good summary of the present situation. So with thanks to him, I am providing an excerpt of his update below. If you have trouble keeping up, don’t feel bad.
In addition to the presentations at the recently-concluded Annual Meeting of ABMA’s Commercial Systems Group and my comments during the Annual Meeting General Session last Monday, USEPA has responded further to the recent court ruling that vacated the agency’s stay on its Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) rules.
