Comment | More

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is hosting 7 public hearings on the agency’s proposal to regulate the disposal and management of coal ash from coal-fired power plants.

At issue for the protective and marine coatings industry is beneficial use of coal slag as an abrasive. For a full account of how the proposed new regulation could affect coal slag use, see Alison Kaelin’s article, “Why EPA’s Proposed Rule on Coal Wastes Could Affect Industrial Painting Work,” JPCL, August, 2010

The agency says it will consider the public’s comments in its final decision.
