Environmental Protection Agency: Standards of Performance for Stationary Spark Ignition Internal Combustion Engines and National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines
GAO-08-441R: Jan 31, 2008
- Full Report:
GAO reviewed the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) new rule on standards of performance for stationary spark ignition internal combustion engines and national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants for reciprocating internal combustion engines. GAO found that (1) the final rule sets new source standards of performance for stationary spark ignition internal combustion engines, and also sets national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants for new and reconstructed stationary reciprocating internal combustion engines that are either located at area sources of hazardous air pollutant emissions or have a site rating of less than or equal to 500 brake horsepower and are located at major sources of hazardous air pollutant emissions; and (2) EPA complied with the applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
