The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released new regulations in regards to cement kilns, incinerators and industrial boilers on December 21, 2012. According to The New York Times, the standards focus on reducing acid gas, mercury and small-particle emissions across the country.
Several officials with the National Association of Manufacturers noted that the compliance expenses associated with the rules could cost companies up to $14 billion. These administrators said that the additional EPA regulations may limit expansion opportunities for some businesses.
However, the EPA estimates that air quality improvements to comply with the new regulations could cost manufacturers around $2 billion. The standards are also designed to give companies several years to comply to reduce the impact on employees and operations.
