To Whom It May Concern: The Air Advocacy Coalition (“A2C”) appreciates the opportunity to submit the following comments on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (“EPA” or “Agency”) advance notice of proposed rulemaking entitled “Addition of 1-Bromopropane to Clean Air Act Section 112 HAP List,” published at 86 Fed. Reg. 31225 (June 11, 2021) (“ANPR”).
The A2C is an ad-hoc coalition comprised of the American Chemistry Council, the American Coke and Coal Chemicals Institute, the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers, the American Petroleum Institute, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The purpose of the A2C is to advocate for sensible and effective federal emissions standards under the Clean Air Act (“CAA”). Companies represented by the members of the A2C make and use 1-bromopropane (“1-BP”) and, more broadly, will be affected by the precedent established by the legal and policy determinations that are made by this first-ever listing of a new hazardous air pollutant (“HAP”) under CAA § 112.
