"EPA New Source Review Plan Gives Companies Air Permitting Relief"

"Power plants, refineries, and other industrial factories may obtain some relief from the cost of obtaining air pollution permits as the EPA calls for changing the way it calculates emissions.

The Environmental Protection Agency on Aug. 1 proposed changes to the Clean Air Act’s New Source Review permitting program, which currently requires industrial facilities to install new pollution controls each time a company adds a new facility or expands existing operations.

Under this new proposal, facilities would only have to obtain New Source Review permits for “net” increases of pollution."
