EPA Comment Deadline: New Source Performance Standards for Greenhouse Gas Emissions from New, Modified, and Reconstructed Electric Generating Units

Monday, March 18, 2019 - 5:00pm

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is welcoming public comment on a proposal to revise the New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for greenhouse gas emissions from new, modified, and reconstructed fossil fuel-fired power plants. 

In December 2018, after analysis and review, the EPA proposed to determine that the best system of emission reduction (BSER) for newly constructed coal-fired units, is the most efficient demonstrated steam cycle in combination with the best operating practices. As a result the EPA proposed to revise the New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for greenhouse gas emissions from new, modified, and reconstructed fossil fuel-fired power plants. 

Members of the public may submit comments by mail, fax or at Regulations.gov. More information is available at the EPA's website
