Portland Cement Ass'n v. EPA   (D.C. Circuit)

Challenging EPA regulation of CISWI

The NAM and other industry organizations filed a petition with a federal appeals court to review a final rule, issued by EPA on Feb. 7, 2013, on Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incineration (CISWI) units. The rule amends rules issued in 2011 relating to restrictions on materials that are used as fuels or ingredients in combustion units. Our petition, styled American Wood Council v. EPA, was consolidated by the court into the Portland Cement Association case. On April 1, 2013, we joined other business groups in a petition to EPA for administrative reconsideration of this regulation, along with two related rules involving air pollutants for area sources (boiler GACT, or generally available control technology) and major sources (boiler MACT, or maximum achievable control technologies).

The court consolidated this case into a challenge to the 2011 rule on CISWI units, styled American Forest & Paper Ass'n v. EPA. Click here for further details on this combined litigation.
