Stoll Quoted on Calls for EPA to Tighten Waste Combustor MACT

17 June 2014 News
Partner Richard Stoll was quoted in an article published on on June 17, 2014, titled “EAB Review Could Spur Calls for EPA to Tighten Waste Combustor MACT.” The article explained questions that have been raised by a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Environmental Appeals Board (EAB) judge in a hazardous waste combustor suit over whether the EPA’s maximum achievable control technology (MACT) standard for the combustors is sufficiently strict when applied. Stoll, an attorney representing the industry group Cement Kiln Recycling Coalition, an amicus party in the case ESSROC Cement Corporation, told the EAB that agency risk assessors crafted the limit using an unrealistic default value in agency guidance, and imposed a limit that "was not based on reality."
