Report summary

Today—April 16, 2015—the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Mercury and Air Toxics Standards go into effect requiring power plants to comply with stringent emission rate limits for mercury, acid gases, and other toxic pollutants. Despite going into effect today, MATS has one more legal hurdle to clear which has implications on the next major EPA regulation facing the power sector—the Clean Power Plan.
