Quick Glance: New EPA Rule Mandates 218 US Chemical Plants to Reduce Toxic Emissions
  • A new rule from the Environmental Protection Agency will require over 200 chemical plants nationwide to reduce toxic emissions likely to cause cancer. This rule advances President Joe Biden's commitment to environmental justice by providing crucial health protections for communities burdened by industrial pollution from ethylene oxide, chloroprene, and other dangerous chemicals.

  • The rule will significantly decrease emissions of chloroprene and other pollutants, impacting the Denka Performance Elastomer facility in LaPlace, Louisiana, the largest source of chloroprene emissions in the country. Democratic Representative Troy Carter hailed the new rule as "a monumental step" to safeguard public health and the environment.

  • The EPA will cut over 6,200 tons of toxic air pollutants annually and implement fenceline monitoring to address health risks in surrounding communities, promoting environmental justice in Louisiana and other states. Environmental activists see the rule as a victory for environmental justice, representing a significant step towards clean air and safe communities.

  • Focusing on toxic emissions, the rule provides protection for communities that have suffered from underregulated emissions. The introduction of fenceline monitoring for six toxic air pollutants is crucial for ensuring accountability and transparency. This rule marks a significant stride towards a more just and equitable environmental protection framework.
