In a Reversal, EPA Maintains Standard for Coal-Fired Power Plants Based on CCS
Yet, in a last-minute attempt to protect industry, says power plants are the only sources whose climate emissions can be regulated. After proposing to repeal the first ever U.S. greenhouse gas standards issued in 2015 for coal-fired power plants – which are based on partial carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) – EPA decided…
