In these uncertain economic times, manufacturing companies need to be prepared to address a host of environmental issues, including the possibility of plant closings and temporary shutdowns. There are a multitude of environmental laws and regulations that address plant construction and development, but what about when a plant closes, undergoes a temporary shutdown, or re-opens?

Foley's Environmental Regulation attorneys provided insightful discussion and analysis on Closings, Temporary Shutdowns, and Re-Openings: Environmental Issues and Opportunities in a Troubled Economy. Topics included:

  • Plant closing, temporary shutdown, and re-opening considerations, including:
    • When might a re-opening trigger Clean Air Act New Source Review?
    • When might a temporary shutdown trigger Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) “closure” obligations, and a re-opening be deemed a “new” RCRA facility?
    •  Critical timing issues to preserve the right to create environmental credits in the event of a shutdown
  • Environmental considerations in bankruptcy and bankruptcy-related transactions

The program also included a brief segment on President Obama's recent EPA and U.S. Department of Justice appointments and the latest reversals of EPA regulations and policies set forth under the Bush administration.
