Will new EPA mercury rules mean cleaner BSW air?

Filed under: Uncategorized — cedarhilleditor @ 8:50 pm

How much will the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed cuts in mercury emissions from cement kilns affect TXI and other Midlothian (Texas) cement-makers, and by extension, air quality in Cedar Hill and other southern Dallas suburbs?

It’s to be hoped that the new regulations not only reduce mercury emissions, but produce better accountability in tracking just how much these plants do emit.

With the EPA wanting cuts of 75 percent or more, it’s clear its serious.

Happy Earth Day!
