The Environmental Protection Agency is seeking input from the Clean Air Act Advisory Committee's climate change work group on how to define the so-called "best available control technology," or BACT, for stationary sources of greenhouse gases. In a letter to the work group, Gina McCarthy, an assistant administrator of the EPA, asked that the report be finalized in time for a clean-air advisory panel meeting on May 26 and 27. Businesses and regulators are awaiting EPA's guidance as they prepare for the agency to begin regulating emissions from some industrial facilities in January.
