On July 31, 2023, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a proposal titled, “National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants: Integrated Iron and Steel Manufacturing Facilities Technology Review.” The EPA is extending the comment period on the proposed rule from September 14, 2023, to September 29, 2023.
Rationale. On July 31, 2023, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a proposal titled, “National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants: Integrated Iron and Steel Manufacturing Facilities Technology Review,” 88 FR 49402 (July 31, 2023). In the proposal, the EPA provided a public comment period until September 14, 2023. The EPA has received requests for additional time to review and comment on the proposed rule.
