The Environmental Protection Agency announced August 14 that it has agreed to reconsider boiler and incinerator air pollution technical standards by reopening the public comment period. While the agency has yet to publish a notice of reconsideration with the full list of topics, it will ask for comments on the carbon monoxide limit, the definition of startup and shutdown periods, and continuous parameter monitor systems. The regulations were finalized in December 2012, and the agency sent letters to petitioning industry groups August 5 saying it was granting reconsideration.
