EPA Coal Ash Regulations

George Cavros | August 17, 2010 | Webinars

The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE) continues its webinar series with a presentation on EPA’s Proposed Coal Ash Regulations: The Problem, Proposals and Process. Our webinars are your opportunity to directly engage with SACE staff and learn about emerging clean energy technologies, opportunities and issues that SACE engages in everyday. SACE is excited to use this technology as a way to connect with our members and share the most up-to-date advances in the clean energy field.

For the August 17th webinar in SACE’s monthly webinar series, we will explain the problem, proposal and process of EPA’s coal ash regulation. Following the disastrous 2008 coal ash spill at the Tennessee Valley Authority’s Kingston plant, the nation awoke to the dangers of this toxic sludge, consisting of the waste left behind after coal is burned to produce energy. This ash contains arsenic, mercury, lead, chromium, and a number of other chemicals, but its generation, storage, transportation, and disposal are unregulated. The Environmental Protection Agency has taken a first step towards finally regulating this mess, but they have done so very unusually, by co-proposing two very different methods of regulation. In this webinar we will explain the details and differences between EPA’s two proposals, the process for making a decision, and how you can get involved. We invite you to join us on August 17th from 12:00pm to 1:00pm for a briefing and open discussion.
