The American Chemistry Council has filed public comments criticizing the Environmental Protection Agency's draft rules on formaldehyde emissions from wood-products manufacturing. "EPA's proposed rule ... is not based on the best available science, greatly overstates any tangible health benefits, and will send confusing messages in the marketplace," said Jackson Morrill of ACC's Formaldehyde Panel. "EPA discounts the scientific evidence of a threshold for health effects, disagrees with findings from international authoritative bodies and presents valuations that are not based on biological evidence," Morrill said.
