EPA Extends Comment Period and Schedules Public Hearing on Petroleum Refining NESHAPS

On November 8, 2007, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency extended the public comment period on EPA’s proposed National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for petroleum refineries. Public comments are now due to EPA on or before December 28, 2007. In the same notice that extends the comment period, EPA noted that “additional material has been added to the docket since the rule was published” in September 2007.

EPA also announced a public hearing on the proposed NESHAPS. The hearing will be held on November 27, 2007, at the Hartman Park Community Center in Houston Texas. If you wish to speak at the hearing, you must register on or before November 21, 2007.
