The Portland Cement Association filed legal briefs with the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals addressing the cement industry’s challenge to the portland cement national emission standard for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP). The NESHAP rule was finalized by the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in September 2010 (75 Fed. Reg. 54970). It establishes new, very stringent standards addressing particulate matter, hydrochloric acid, total hydrocarbons and mercury. The compliance date for the cement industry is September 9, 2013.
