USTMA CONTINUES TO ADVANCE EPA REVIEW OF TIRE MANUFACTURING FACILITIES' AIR EMISSIONS

Earlier this month, USTMA members and staff met with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina to review industry-provided data to assist with the agency's residual risk and technology review of tire manufacturing facilities' air emissions. USTMA educated the agency on the extensive work USTMA members have voluntarily done to collect emissions data from their facilities.

EPA is under a deadline to complete Clean Air Act-required reviews of hazardous air pollutant emissions from over 30 industries, including the tire manufacturing industry. EPA plans to issue a proposed rule for tire manufacturers by 2018 and a final rule by 2020. USTMA is committed to working collaboratively with the agency to provide industry information to assist the agency in completing its review. For additional information, please contact Jesse Levine or Sarah Amick.
