May 6 Webinar On DEP White Paper On Controlling CO2 Emissions From Power Plants

The Department of Environmental Protection will hold a webinar starting at 9:30 a.m. on May 6 on  Pennsylvania’s 111(d) Air Emissions White Paper outlining our proposal to reduce emissions from existing power plants.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is developing carbon dioxide (CO2) pollution standards for both new and existing fossil fuel-fired power plants. The federal agency’s proposal for existing fossil fuel-fired plants is expected by be available June 1, 2014, with a final rulemaking due by June 2015.
In anticipation of EPA’s proposal, Pennsylvania submitted a plan for consideration that would achieve lower emissions from existing power plants by removing obstacles and encouraging efficiency projects. At the heart of Pennsylvania’s plan is efficiency and the preservation of states’ authority and discretion in the development and implementation of emissions control programs.
The webinar will provide an overview of Pennsylvania’s proposal to reduce not just CO2 emissions, but all pollutants, while creating cleaner air, lower prices and more jobs. The webinar is geared toward, but not limited to, environmental groups, industry groups and the general public.
